Antonio Marras SS14

In veils and Midsummer wreaths, Marras presents painterly prints and feminine silhouettes

Initial reaction:

Midsummer Night’s Dream under blue moonlight.


A silvered colour palette and closing wreaths evoked fairytales, while silhouettes were drawn from twenties drop waists, to fifties fit and flare, and nineties grunge in a parka and prom dress combo.

Unexpected details:

The ghostly outline of hands inside the pockets of a sheer black shirt, and the peak of a taffeta gown beneath a khaki green parka.


Outsized roses and a painterly river scene in watery tones, as if seen through a silver filter.


Distorted female portraits in line illustration on full t-shirt tops and dresses evoked yesterday’s face prints at Prada SS14.

Stand out looks:

A sheer black t-shirt sleeved gown, illustrated with white abstract shapes and worn with the slimmest of belts and fifties high waist knickers. Both ethereal and curiously dark.

How they wore it:

With princess-collared jackets, in crackled silver leather, shimmering brocade and a delicate dot-and-stripe with sheer sleeve panels.


Black-veiled, lush green wreaths adorned the heads of the closing models, worn like crowns and bonnets.


Dreadlocked ends escaped from the slicked low twisted buns; faces were pale, with a sweep of icy blue shadow across the lid.

Left us wanting:

To throw a soiree in the woods, sipping cocktails under the moonlight.
