Antonio Marras

CRAFT CONSCIOUS
Milan: A fascination with mid-century craftiness has been appearing in fashion lately, identifiable via a slew of mustard-based color palettes and retro wallpaper prints. Antonio Marras proved this vintage-inspired trend still has legs for Fall by basing his collection on patchworked prints and heavy brocade textures,  as well as raglan sleeve jackets and fluted-hem pencil skirts. Persian lamb and velvet, also current materials of choice, lent a weightiness to wrapped boleros and trench coats, while drama ensued with chubby fur sleeves and asymmetric obi dresses. Bright crimson and teal were a welcome alternative to the expected yellows and earth tones, but Marras’ repetitive silhouettes and an overload of swing coats needed a serious edit.—Nina Stotler

    Loving the blocky textures here – sometimes restraint isn’t necessarily the best approach with textile mixing.
