Item description for Antonio Marras (Mode) by & Antonio Mancinelli...
Devoted to one of the very sensitive among the figures crowding the contemporary fashion scene, this book recounts in pictures and words the development of Antonio Marras' ideas and creative output. Talking about his work, he himself says: "Memories, traces, impressions, and perhaps tears too, are mixed up in the many lives each of us lives. To get going in my work I always need a story to tell." This is the reason why Antonio Marras's work is capable of bringing together all the contrasts out of which our present existence is blended-local and global, traditional and innovative, past and future-and of putting them continually to the test with a very strong feeling for material and form. His clothes and collections reflect an unmistakable style that is recognized all over the world. Antonio Mancinelli, journalist and senior editor of Marie Claire, contributes to many magazines and newspapers. He lectures at the Domus Academy and the Polytechnic in Milan.

Reviews - What do customers think about Antonio Marras (Mode)?
Luxe Bohemian Chic Apr 30, 2008
A treasure of a little book filled with the romantic, creative imagination of a gifted artist applying his skills to making luscious clothes with exotic accents and other wonderfully surprising and witty details. A special point of view combining plenty of global and historical touches to both the womens and menswear collections. Currently designing for the House of Kenzo, a label very much involved with cross-cultural, print-happy, textile-rich style.
