More versatile than last year’s “Radiant Orchid”, Marsala is equally appealing to both men and women and is extremely flattering against most skin tones.
From housewares to delectable wines and furnishings, Marsala is a richly attractive color for men and women.
Inventive fur designs in this color have already popped up on New York, Paris, London and Milan runways and the hue can easily transition from fall to winter. An ultra-luxurious collarless mink3/4 sleeve car coat and a knee-length, Marsalaesque broadtail dress coat appeared on the runway for Italian luxury house Dolce & Gabbana. Other splashes of the intoxicating wine color were seen throughout the collection in floral details and even some fun and funky Marsala colored fox fur headphones. Another head-turning piece was seen in the Alberta Ferretti collection by way of a rich Marsala mink coat with hints of berry-inspired hues mixed in.
Marc Jacobs presented the “Astrakhan” fur mini jacket in Marsala at his 2015 Resort Collection. The double-breasted design was worn with black stockings and high-heeled strappy sandals. Dsquared2 also used touches of Marsala to accent their deeply cultural collection, while Emporio Armani presented a show-stopping ankle length coat with a graphic pattern in deep red wine tones. A funky zig-zag print mink coat by Gucci playfully played rose-pink off of Marsala to create a lovely and lady-like silhouette.

Phillip Lim showed a zip front vest in an abstract Marsala print, using this same print in sleeves to accent a black and white tweed suit for his fall 2015 collection. Meanwhile, Prabal Gurung offered up a softer take on the trend by presenting the color on a cape-like hooded coat and Derek Lam’s Marsala colored calf hair flat has been flying off retail shelves.
Marsala played heavily into the Gucci Pre-Fall 2015 presentation. The wine colored hue was shown on multi-colored fur jackets, leather dresses and trench coats in the 70s’ inspired collection.
