From Barbanera’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Italia’ collection for S/S17, which is an ode to the times of Totò, Mastroianni and the likes of great Italian cinematography and style alike, we find the Marinetti: a canvas spectator done differently. From sharp curves,  diamond shaped caps and brogueing sitting atop eachother, the Marinetti definitely presents something different to your typical canvas spectator.

And whether you may or may not like it, what has to be appreciated is the fact that they try as where would the world be if no one tried to push the boundaries? ……Once Upon A Time In Italia…..
