Marras' own aesthetic is such an adequate match for Kenzo that it seemed natural that he should turn to seventies style icons such as Farrah Fawcett and mine Kenzo Takada's original sensibility that resulted in a joyously playful collection. Beating his own mixed floral drum, Marras deftly mixed florals, checks, leopard all in the seventies-inspired silhouettes that have been making something of a comeback with gilets, elegant and liberating tailoring, fur boleros, flowing scarves and trilby hats all contributing to the mix. The liberating nature of the prints are best seen on the maxi dresses and skirts, some of which were weighted down by tribal-looking jewellery. Oversized satchels and sheepskin lined boots added a preppy and grounded touch to the multitude of prints.
