Go check part 2 of our essential Menswear Print Trends Autumn/Winter 2013.

Patternbank are big fans of Antonio Marras who always delivers when it comes to print, pattern and a love of fabrics, embroidery and embellishment. This Pre Fall 2013 collection didn’t fail to delight with beautifully executed floral prints mixed with geometric and paisley patterns. Exquisite jacquard coats and knitwear featured textured pattern and small tie motifs. It’s not surprising then that Marras was previously artistic director at Kenzo where mixing inspirations, costume, textiles and contemporary art goes hand in hand. To see more of Antonio Marras’ creations go to antoniomarras.it. Photos via fashionising.com
