Antonio Marras



Milan: For spring, Antonio Marras found a kindred spirit in the 19th-century English poet John Keats and the Jane Campion movie, Bright Star, that was devoted to the tragic figure and his lover. It was not much of a stretch for Marras, as the vintage, romantic references translated to his usual dainty confections – lacy drop-waisted frocks and languid chiffon numbers streaked with various floral prints – as well as coquettish retro-style undergarments and swimsuits that played peek-a-boo under sheer, apron-style dresses and tunics. Like last season’s collection, menswear influences and laid-back styling kept the ensembles from becoming too saccharine. Wool suitings were pieced with frothy sheers, trench coat-inspired items provided a utilitarian canvas for lace appliqués, pantsuits were cut in offbeat proportions and fancy tees grounded sweeping maxi skirts. Unlike the film, this collection ended on a happy note, filled with all the sweetness and dreamy escapism we have come to expect from the eternal optimist, Mr. Marras.
