Soundsuits — wearable fabric sculptures by the American artist Nick Cave — served as the main reference for Consuelo Castiglioni’s hyper-chic pre-fall collection for Marni. The inspiration was mostly evident in whimsical multicolor alpaca pieces, which included an elongated vest in a graphic pattern and a cocoon coat in a harlequin-like motif, worn over a striped dress.

A subtler, sophisticated sense of extravagance was offered via a jacquard Lurex coat with matching minidress worked in a festive red-and-blue floral pattern. This created a charming contrast to minimalist black-and-white looks, including a cotton and wool canvas coat over flared cotton and wool twill pants.
