Thinking about spring…


I love Antonio Marras, and he has never let me down.  I was thinking about spring which led me to look at his 2012 show again. It starts out very clean and lady like without a whole lot of that Marras collage.  At first I was a little worried that he wasn’t going to break loose.  My favorite thing about his clothes is how he not only  pieces fabrics together brilliantly but he manages to patchwork time periods, places and identities. Always adding a little intarsia or embroidery where there shouldn’t be any at all.  In this collection my favorite pieces came at the end. These piece work jacket and skirt sets as well as the pieced shifts with pockets are amazing.  And these little patch work embroidered bikini tops are killing me. They are perfect, reminding me so much of the 90’s. I want to make hundreds of them just for the fun of it…
