Antonio Marras - Menswear Show Autumn/Winter 2015/16 in Milan with interview

There is always a history behind the latest menswear collection at Antonio Marras. This time this designer takes us into the universe of a Sardinian artist leaving for the New World. For the show, a yellow cab and an olive plant made up the decor in the Milanese garage. Continuing is a fashion that mixes different universes and different textures. Camouflage, fur, jacquard prints take over the wardrobe with parkas, suits and other jackets. The knitwear is equally present and reinforces this desire for comfortable clothes. The fabrics gave some effects with some quilting, and some touches of fur for the collar or at the bottom of a jacket. To note: the shoes with huge soles in rubber accessorizing all the silhouettes. Interview: Antonio Marras : It’s a Sardinian artist, who is called Constantino Nivola and in the 50s/60s he married a woman called Ruth Guggenheim, so he married her and he leaves for America and he goes to live in the Hamptons, and his neighbours are Pollock and Le Corbusier and he really starts on a new adventure, he totally changes his life. So I imagined his life when he arrives in New York, he takes the taxi and the taxi driver is Robert de Niro, it’s Travis. These are two totally different characters, but they start to talk and it’s really a fusion between Constantino Nivola et Robert de Niro.Antonio Marras: I bought vintage military fabrics which we cut, which we embroidered, which we sewed over the already existing shapes, and we also have furs for men, with a mix of vintage fur for the big gilets, for the big coats or for the big parkas as well. Finally, the knitwear is also really important for us, we really wanted to offer a variety of knitwear, and the link is the three colours that are fundamental in my collection, the military green, burgundy and of course black.
