Each and every collection created by Antonio Marras is a romantic love letter to women. But this season he took that sentiment literally and left on the seat of each guest a letter he had written to the iconic Italian super model Benedetta Barzini. She famously posed for the cover of the first issue of Vogue Italia back in November 1965 and worked with all the greats — Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Ugo Mulas — and their ilk.

"She is a dear friend of mine as well as an eccentric, limitless woman. She is a living legend of fashion," said Marras before his show.

To honor her, the designer produced a classically poetic Marras collection filled with deftly mixed prints, elaborate embroideries and layers of lace and fur accents. Volume was also important this season with loose cut coats reminiscent of the redingotes worn in the 18th century and full cut cropped trousers.

The color palette was dominated by a combination of baby blue and burgundy with quite a bit of black to boot. But even when the designer limited himself to just one shade, he would switch up the fabrics to give the outfit a sense of depth.

This was a collection all about adornment and decorations. Pieces designed to woo women with their idiosyncratic audacity and richly layered reference points.

It certainly worked on Barzini, who came out of retirement to close the show. Her ear-to-ear smile, beautifully unaltered features, and graceful glide as she circled the runway in a long sleeve floor-skimming A line gown sealed the deal on this delightful show.
