Angelo Marani managed to mash together some of fall’s biggest obsessions into one single Milan fashion week (MFW) show – and yet didn’t make the decision to do so feel contrived but rather strangely organic. There was the use of graphic black and white which came up in spades, literally, knitted into sweaters in playing card suits. There were animal prints and there were plaids, and sometimes there were even brightly coloured plaids paired with black and white optical illusion prints. Sounds like a crazy clash and it kind of was, but Marani made it work simply because he didn’t hold back.
Marani’s fall / winter 2013 collection was another to revive 1960s fashion in a way that brought the essence of it to life without replicating it exactly. The flippy skirts had an optimistic bounce that doesn’t get conveyed in photos and the red florals on black were as much rock-chic as they were feminine. In all Marani brought a vintage essence to a modern and sometimes even sporty mix; and in his eccentric clashes did the whole thing with conviction.
