Spring 2012: Antonio Marras

29 Dec

If there is one thing that Marras does well, it is creating a completely unique collection each season. For the fall, Marras’ collection was very dark and mature while for the Spring 2011 he went casual and floral. Here we have another, COMPLETELY different one. He was inspired by a play called The Maids by Genet. I haven’t read this/seen it, but it is (apparently) a wonderfully complex show. He did a lot of color blocking and contrasting entirely floral pieces — pattern blocking in a sense. Many of the pieces were sexy and alluring yet completely shapeless. That’s the ultimate sign of beautifully crafted pieces in my mind — the ability to create something intricate and feminine from something that looks utterly unflattering on a hanger. Many things — color scheme, base pieces and patterns were taken from the show which I will obviously now have to see. I really cannot wait to see the next way Marras completely subverts his previous collections.
