You can't help but be dazzled by the smashing approach of the Antonio Marras who was literally not afraid of picking up on the Latin America Bohema. He summoned his muse, Frida Kahlo, the legendary avant-garde Mexican artist, whose off-the-wall sense has no need of representation. True to form, the fashion's great romantic Marras, the jack-of-all trades, sent out the gowns without literal costumery feel. He explored the feeling of the Mexican art and culture through the range of demonstrating floral, plaid, paisley and other prints as well as teamed everything with the right shades of olive or mahogany brownish.
Dark evocative colours balancing with mosaics of fabrics and motifs that introduce the Día de los Muertos glory in an unvarnished kind of way. The pride of opulence goes to the bronze beaded prints, blood-red rose prints or fluid trouser suit with gold embroidery, for a thick and luxurious Mexican folk 'n' art mix.
If the choice were set upon the eccentric charm and free use of dark boho or coppery palette of colours, and was meant to peak a hallmark of both label and its creative director, Kenzo succeeded in it.
