Sequined and slim is Milan's Marni for winter

Marni

From Style Correspondent Elsa Klensch

MILAN, Italy (CNN) -- Casual and completely contemporary clothes top the list when Consuelo Castiglioni designs for Milan's Marni.

For fall/winter, the designer creates skirts that are below the knee or very long to give her silhouettes a slim shape.

But Castiglioni says it's the little things that give punch to every outfit. Her trimmings include colored fur and velvet fringe.

"The details I think are very important in this collection," she says.

Castiglioni says her choice of fabrics -- baby alpaca, mohair, cashmere, sable -- dictates her mostly neutral color palette. It's a color collection that highlights different shades of her shimmery green.

She says she doesn't have a day and evening collection; rather, all pieces can extend into night.

For instance, she says, sequins are versatile. "Sequins for evening and for day."
