Antony Morato

Brand Spotlight: Antony Morato


Antony Morato started in 2007, and while this Italian brand may be young it is certainly making heads turn in the fashion world. Morato has a fall line with a look that is sophisticated punk rock rebel. Fitted dress shirts are tripped with zipper edges, sweaters flip their prep school heritage into a punk rock rebellion with bold shouts of yellow and deconstructed patterns, outerwear is London sheik with a dash of anarchist edge and the graphic t-shirts pull the whole thing together with loud color and brash designs.
