Antonio Marras’ solo exhibition in Milan’s Triennale, “Nulla dies sine linea”, was a dynamic presentation curated by Francesca Alfano Miglietti. The rustically, almost military-inspired garments were worn by wandering models who mixed with the crowd, stopping now and then to create tableaux vivants, as if frozen by Medusa’s glare. Marras’ men are not dandy gents or soldiers, but shepherds and farmers that ward of wolves instead of war with their rifles.

Marras’ models move about freely, mixing in with the crowd, stopping from time to time.
Hundreds of Marras’ drawings and sketches from his numerous trips are on display in Milan’s Triennale.
Marras’ insatiable creativity is illustrated in his colourful sketchbooks, albums and diaries.
The exhibition is a narration of Antonio Marras’ visionary world, filled with emotional and intellectual elements that trace his lifetime.
For Antonio Marras’ solo exhibition, alongside previous and new installations, there are over 500 illustrations and paintings.
Marras is known as the most intellectual Italian fashion designer, as well as for his blending of various creative fields, including film, poetry, history and the visual arts.
Marras’ poetic universe is made of various languages, techniques, materials and expressions.
The exhibition was curated by Francesca Alfano Miglietti, and was made to be a full-immersion experience, taking onlookers on provocative, expressive journey, at times absolute, and others, without conditions.
The Marras models are not dandy gents or military men, but shepherds and farmers that ward off the wolves with their rifles.
The title was taken from Plinio the Elder famous saying about the poet Apelle, proving that Marras has always combined his profession of fashion designer with that of artist.
Marras has transformed severe menswear jackets into pieces that hang leisurely from the body.
The Sardinian stylist chose to present his 2017 men’s fall/winter inside of his solo exhibition, Nulla Dies Sine Linea.
The 2017 fall/winter collection is a kaleidoscope of 40’s style embroidery, romantic floral patterns, leopard-print details, military sweaters, brocade and jacquard.

Tundu dance; a performance of layered skirts, Marras.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
