Whilst lounging around the rugged gem of an Island that is Sardinia I have been indulging in way to much food and local wines collected with empty water bottles from local wine makers. However I have also been checking out the traditional Sardinian dress and its history which has influenced the hand of designer Antonio Marras so much.

Traditional Sardinian Dress

For AW 2011, The talented designer who spends a lot of the time on the Island at his studio was inspired by the intriguing story of  the legendary Sardinian bandit queen Paska Devaddis. A lady who famously wore a mixture of men and woman’s clothing.

The True Story of Paska Devaddis

Usually the tirade of fearless Sardinian men, Devaddis’ legacy is that of a strong, caring and gentle young lady in the early twentieth century Sardinia who cooled the fracas between the feuding Cossu and Corraine families and lived a turbulent life beyond the law.

Check out Antonio Marras’ runway show below. I love the magpie mix of vagabond lady style, cropped fur-trimmed tweed coats, heirloom brooches, trinkets and antique floral prints.

Keep on Fuelling,
