Now, I’m not blaming anybody for this, but somebody from this office was supposed to take a good picture, you know – one that you can actually register detail in… But, for whatever reason it didn’t happen. So, here, instead, an official catwalk shot.
Any thoughts on inspiration? I said Mutter Courage, Antony said Dr. Zhivago in fact it was Russia. I think Antonio Marras has this ability to meld references together without venturing into the realms of parody: the dresses and coats were beautiful and that hint of military – bang on the money. There’s a sense of this around: military/protection but all the while tempered with his acute understanding of beauty and femininity. A really great show.
