Plan C Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Carolina Castiglioni isn’t exactly thrilled to talk about references or give insights into the inspirations and sub-texts that underpin her collections. He bets on his world and his style; each season, he goes back to his favorite set of parameters, repeating them with slight variations. At the very least, he’s quite reluctant to talk about anything other than his job.

For fall, she has retouched her repertoire of workwear-inspired outerwear, built on simple, spacious architectural shapes, enlivened by saturated color blocks, inlays, patchwork and games between feminine and masculine elements. The search for fabrics with a technical touch and an interesting surface texture is one of Castiglioni’s pleasures; this season he has experimented with an unusual vertical-horizontal quilted motif on techno taffeta for elongated and modular duvets, as well as macro sequins in a round shape screen-printed in abstract flowers, replicating the main printed theme of the collection. Another example was a cotton / nylon blend with a translucent liquid effect and rubbery finish, transformed into a padded A-line coat in a bold shade of cobalt blue.

Contrasts played throughout the collection. Floral-printed georgette dresses contrasted with industrial-cut tailored coats; a patchwork sheepskin bomber jacket had detachable knitted sleeves. Custom printed macro sequins finished the hem of a straight felt skirt, while in their micro version they covered the front of a sleeveless black tunic. The offer was enlivened by Castiglioni’s favorite colors, the bright shades of magenta, yellow and cobalt blue.
