Linear thinking is never an option when it comes to Antonio Marras fashion.
The designer became fixated on masculine creations – check, tartan and Prince of Wales – which he applied with fun and eclecticism to his pre-fall women’s line me.
Returning to work with his main men’s collection, he exploited similar patterns by patching them together to evoke a hunting theme with sturdy field jackets featuring lots of pockets, padded outerwear with contrasting patches and cut and sewn merchandise that makes one’s dream come true. retreat to the shores of Lake Sardinia (lookbook photo was taken along Lake Calich, on Marras’ home island).
His hunters transformed into ’90s grunge kids in the woods, dressed in oversized mélange knits and tartan kilns with brightly colored floral wraps all reminiscent of to the style of Kurt Cobain. The flannel shirt is made up of countless panels, each of which combine to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Marras admits he’s not much of a drainage aficionado but in the process of locking the door he came up with a sage green patchwork cardigan with scraps of the collection’s fabric on the front.
Marras’ patchwork and splashes of hemp fabrics have become somewhat of a hallmark of his own, proving that sustainability is always embedded in his designs. This dates back many years, as the designer explains: “When my uncle passed away, my brothers inherited his estate, I got his wardrobe.”
Uncle Marras is farsighted.
