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:
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
(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.
A Look Book-Back
an inviting visual and tactile mixture
of textures, colours, asymmetry
and as akin to the
unexpectedness of atmospheric shifts:
the look is wonderfully unpredictable.
