Antonio Marras MenswearFall Winter 2014 Milan Menswear

Runway Review
1/13/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Antonio Marras drew from Italy's expertise in textiles and tailoring, and his own roots as the son of a fabric merchant growing up in provincial Sardinia for his latest collection.

It featured tailored looks for the office, like a patch-pocket blazer done in a deep blue and grey plaid. The menswear story for next winter seems to be about a skinny silhouette with pants skimming the ankles.

Marras used plenty of interesting fabrics, including felted gabardine, polka dot corduroy, and jacquard jerseys usually reserved for neckties.

In homage to Italy's sartorial tradition, Marras set the stage with rows of tailors hunched over their sewing machines, from young boys to old men.

"It's a concert to the sound of the sewing machine," he said. "My father had a fabric shop."
