Antonio Marras Pre-Fall 2013

New York: For Pre-Fall, Antonio Marras imagined a Rosemary’s Baby-era Mia Farrow wandering about the rails of the High Line in New York. The model in the lookbook even sported the actress’s famous blond pixie cut. The late 60s, when the film was released, also seemed to have been on Marras’s mind. Biba-esque printed blouses, color blocked A-line and shift dresses, paisley patterns, and tunics all spoke of the era. The designer also included sweet fit-and-flare dresses, roomy trousers, and flattering pleated skirts to round out the offering. A drop-shouldered coat with a rounded silhouette exuded couture elegance. The designer also presented a range of ebullient floral prints, injecting the offering with his signature feminine flair. ­­–Joanna Manganaro
