|The Label: Upbeat, joyful, playful. These are adjectives that quickly come to mind for Marni, the Italian label that has been designed by Consuela Castiglioni since it was launched in 1994. Castiglioni is known for quirky but feminine combinations of bright colors, bold graphic patterns, elaborate fantasy prints, and natural textures, including many furs. The result is off-beat, funky clothes that are still elegant and eminently wearable, day or night. Itís a flirty, youthful look that can be carried well by women of most ages.
The Look: Artsy, out of the ordinary. Funky fashion studentwith a trust fund.
The Designer: Consuela Castiglioni has been designing the collection since 1994.
Who Wears It: Julia Roberts, Ashley Judd, Reese Witherspoon, Kirsten Dunst, Audrey Tatou, Monica Bellucci, and Courteney Cox Arquette.
