MILAN, Italy And now for a fun BoF Spotlight post to end your week. We couldn’t resist a bit of colour to spice up the Spring that is finally blossoming.

Marco Santaniello‘s pop art portraits of fashion models, editors and the ubiquitous bloggerati caught our attention when we stumbled across his Facebook page a couple of months back. Since then, he has continued to churn out images of the industry’s legends and new stars, with alarming regularity.

So where did all of his colourful inspiration come from?

Marco Santoniello for BoFAfter a little bit of investigation we learned that Marco is a crusader against the Italian fashion industry’s formality and bureaucracy and apart from designing his own collection of graphic T’s and writing about fashion news for the MaxMara fashion blog, he worships the Rubik’s Cube, his “personal fetish” and the key influence behind his colourful illustrations, which is sitting in the BoF Spotlight this month

Here is a selection of Marco’s colourful portraits, including Susie Bubble, Anna Wintour, Agyness Deyn, and BoF’s very own Imran Amed.
