Nulla Dies Sine Linea: No day without drawing a line
This is not something that would cross the conscience of most 'fashion' stylists. However, Antonio Marras is a visionary of the fashion world. A ‘darling’ if you like, who has worked as a stylist, creative director and link between cinema, poetry and visual art, and has never compromised throughout his career.
Celebrated as “the most intellectual of Italian stylists,” he is respected all over the globe, and it is his access all areas approach to creating that makes him a master across all disciplines.
His latest coffee table book ‘Nulla Dies Sine Linea’ is a personal expression of the mind behind the mastermind. Fusing poetry with sketches, photographs and lyrics, it is a tumultuous, chaotic and intimate insight into what excites Marras.
As an expression of creative collaborations he has undertaken throughout his vast career, his influences come from poets, musicians, writers, artists and intellectuals, the book diversifies and morphs seamlessly between languages, and techniques which summarise his work ethic.
This volume offers installations, drawings, sketches, and snippets that Marras has created over the years, and is more of a journal than a moodboard. Memories, maps, thoughts, notebooks, photographs and vocabulary have been recorded in this beautiful, stimulating book.
Describing Marras is impossible- he is an influencer across all creative methods, and demonstrates how intricately they link.
Even the title is representative of how fused the realms of styling and art collide and overlap as it refers to the Roman author, Pliny the Elder who stated he “never let a day pass without tracing a line”. Art meets fashion. Fashion is art. Emotions always win!
