As trees now slowly, gently shed their leaves

layering the ground with shades of

warm autumnal colours,

nature thus signals, with a chill in the air,

that colder weather is set to come.

The cooler clime prompts the advent

of one of my favourite fashion looks:

inter-seasonal style.

This summer-transition to-autumn dress

should mimic nature’s own dynamic

response to seasonal change:

rich deep colours, textural interest,

mixed fabrication, asymmetry

and gentle layering.

One designer of note

Consuelo Castiglioni

(founder and creative director of the

Italian fashion label Marni)

seems to know instinctively how to create clothing,

which accentuate an ease of change

from summer to autumn wear.

The inter-seasonal look is accomplished with

dress elements from each season incorporating:

colour, form, patterns, prints,

textures, innovation, artistry

all hallmarks signature to Marni designs.

In recognition of the label’s 20th anniversary

here’s a Marni look book-back

at a few autumn creations, which captures

the spirit of inter-seasonal style attire.

Inter-seasonal layering:

an inviting visual and tactile mixture

of textures, colours, asymmetry

and as akin to the

unexpectedness of atmospheric shifts:

the look is wonderfully unpredictable.
