Summer berries: I'm Isola Marras SS'17

May 12, 2017

The circus comes to town! The circus of a microcosm of all our emotions, adventures, dreams and illusions. The circus provides the ideal backdrop for telling the tender story of the ups and downs of the little acrobat Maria and her beloved Pier.
Always almost somewhere between happiness and enthusiasm or nostalgia and meditativeness. A story told in the rst person by the sweet little artist. Through the Isola Marras collection, she shows various aspects of her personality. Her irony, joy, passion, determination and, above all, her love of beauty.

A romantic tale about stories and relationships outside the big top and of little Maria’s boundless love for animals. Enthralling feats and sights that take our breath away illustrate the events of the circus world at a time when this form of entertainment is going through a very dif cult patch.

Black white burgundy, the brand’s basic palette.
Then blue and indigo. Plus sky blue and apricot.
Stripes, polka dots and owers on ultralight, sheer fabrics.
Flounces, inlays, frills and tiers.
Embroidery, lace and tulle.
Stars, hearts, roses.
Stitches, asymmetry and uidity.


Tiny stars printed on georgette for plissé skirts, frou-frou blouses and loose frothy dresses. Jumbo checks on cotton for loose shirts and long skirts. Ultralight, ultra-delicate textured cottons inlaid with broderie anglaise. Tutus for tightrope walkers and acrobats. And, again, the image of the magical trapeze artist, Maria, lost in a forest of carnivorous orchids.
Indian ink drawings for the circus poster.
Pierivo, mega super star of the Isola Marras circus, and Maria, his little owner.
