THE CHARM OF YOUTH
Milan: Antonio Marras played to a significantly younger audience for S/S 13 with a casual Junior-friendly floral motif, crystal embellished camouflage and textured patchworking. Applied to established must-have items like the fit and flare skater dress, the field jacket and the printed pajama shirt, these details proved eclectic and pretty. Molded short-sleeved tops crafted from tweed and damask looked progressive in comparison, but Marras’ boxier jackets and coats were cut a bit too wide. If the designer wants to target a new clientele next season he will be most successful sticking to the nipped waists, mini shorts and fitted bodices which made this collection so authentic and charming.—Nina Stotler
