Antonio's 2020 Vision
There aren’t that many designers Queen Marie and I both love since our aesthetics are very different. However of the few there are, Antonio Marras is surely one. His love of layering and texture appeal to me and his prints and patterns appeal to Queen Marie.
For his Resort 2020 collection he was inspired by painter William H Johnson, who was prolific during the 1930’s and 40’s. The collection features a predominance of bright colour and pattern. To be honest, overall I don’t like the collection as the silhouettes are, in many places, much too 40’s for me which actually ends up looking very 80’s since the 40’s silhouette was really big back then. And that combined with the bright palette is just too derivative for me personally.
That said, there are some pieces that I utterly love. Pieces that feel heart and soul Marras.
