Antonio Marras f/w 2011-12
Antonio Marras’ being one of the best shows of Milan Fashion Week didn’t come as a surprise. The man knows the craft and he’s got style, but most of all he’s got vision. His shows are always surprising thanks to a few elements considering that in Milan our venues are small and difficult to use, but with “the little” he has, Mr Marras always makes the best and often makes us literally cry also thanks to the soundtraks he chooses. First year I got to see his show it was Bat For Lashes, then were Arcade Fire under a cascade of butterflies and this season was my beloved Pj Harvey.
I can’t describe how thrilled I was when I heard The Glorious Land faraway trumpets, the models came out wearing soft layered dresses, perfect tailored coats and jumpers and then the music changed to The Words That Maketh Murder and then there were trumpets again.
How amazing a 15 minutes fashion show can be thanks to trumpets.
