The Italian designer once said that he liked “everything together.” For the Antonio Marras Spring 2016 ready-to-wear offering, he featured pinstripes with metallic polka dots; oversized suits in earth tones; dresses overlaid with lace and forest-themed embellishments; waistcoats lined with broderie anglaise; skirts with maxi fringe detailing; and python-print platform sandals and socks. From another designer the collection might have come across as busy, but coming from Marras, it held an eccentric charm.
