Introducing: Marine Serre
Back in the summer of 2017, at the brink of finishing fashion school, French designer Marine Serre at 25, won the LVMH prize with her graduation show. Serre, born in a quaint town in the middle of France, near Corrèze, interned under a number of houses including the likes of Maison Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Dior during the time of Raf Simons, and most recently, Balenciaga, before finally departing to focus fully on her namesake atelier. This year’s Marine Serre SS19 Collection displays the designer’s imaginative line up with steadfast devotion, drawing inspirations from the worlds of sportswear and couture.
Dubbed “Hardcore Couture”, the SS19 collection is colored with allover half-moon logos, reflective long coats and sunny-hued gradient nylons, alongside more monochromatic silhouettes, providing the assemblage an overall futuristic outlook infused with an air of couture. One standout piece is the iconic Moon Cat Suit, covered with scarlet-red accents throughout. Constructed in a stretch nylon jersey material, the top half features a round neck, zip closure at the back and tonal stitching; the leggings come with a branded elastic waistband separating the top from the bottom. Another highlight is the Marine Serre Reflective Bell-Shaped Parka, equipped with snap button pockets and a graphic at the back denoting the season collection in French. Other pieces like the Moire Tie-Dye Track Suit Jacket, Transparent Shopping Bag and Moon Knitwear Headband round out the hybridized looks.
