Fashion and design converge in an evocative collection through the creation of three carpets in wool and silk, born from the collaboration with Antonio Marras. Abstract designs and ornaments in pastel tones veer toward deeper hues against light and bright backgrounds. Leaves, blades of grass, wings, flowers and kaleidoscopic contortions follow one another to energise the surface and dissolve it in a dance-like rhythmic movement.

Antonio Marras was born in Alghero, where he lives and works. In 1987 he designed his first collection. In 1991 he was selected to show during High Fashion in Rome. The following year in Paris presents the collection Le nuvole. From the first experiences in fashion Marras stands out for his experiments, for his ability to “feel” the different realities around him, the mix with art, with music, with dance, with theater, with cinema: fashion, for him, is the link with other languages, a new alphabet that can communicate with others. Marras crosses all the declinations of visual culture, from decorations to details from epochs and seemingly irreconcilable worlds. His icons are anarchic and irregular figures, impossible to classify.
