Consuelo Castiglioni found intriguing ways to marry workwear with tailoring, conjuring a collection that was strong on fabric mixes and generous with volumes. Consider, for example, a vest in olive green beaver fur paired with a black goat fur and cotton coat, accessorized with long, fingerless gloves.

Layering was also employed on skinny woolen pants worn under quilted nylon shorts that were matched with a bulky parka made of technical Japanese polyester.

More polished looks included slim-fitting suits and micro-tweed or alpaca coats casually styled with detachable mink collars in different colors.

As exotic as these combinations sound, they all worked.
