Antonio Marras’ Homage to a Timeless Italian Supermodel Exudes Elegance and Beauty
We bring highlights from the Antonio Marras AW 2015 collection from Milan Fashion Week. Fashion One gives you a close up look at the runway show and an exclusive interview with the Designer. First we take you backstage to watch the make up artists and hair stylists transform the models with smokey copper eyeshadow, soft shading and chic, tied back hair.
For this season Marras was inspired by the fashion icon, Italian model and actress Benedetta Barzini. He describes Barzini as an incredible woman and an extraordinary person who is both beautiful and extremely intelligent, who crosses beyond fashion and into art. The palette for the garments was taken from her pale pink skin and grey flecked black hair, and the clothes were intended for women who, just like her, are not afraid of their age. 71 year old Barzini herself was present to close the runway show.
The collection included a lot of volume and embellishment with embroidered 3D fabrics and arabesque influences captured in sophisticated and ageless pieces in subdued hues and tones of grey, sky blue and muted purple. There were trouser suits, silk tops, dresses and skirts with careful construction and structure using a mix of fabrics including crushed velvet, creating in the process new silhouettes and forms for the brand.
