Dressing for the apocalypse.

Marine Serre has vocally supported environmental efforts with her young label for years — approximately 50% of the Spring/Summer 2019 collection, for instance, was crafted from upcycled materials, setting the tone for future offerings to employ similarly conscious craft. Spring/Summer 2020 furthers that approach with strong visual cues, yielding garments inspired by, and suited for, a not-so-imaginary apocalypse brought on by encroaching climate change.

Dubbed “Marée Noire” (“Black Tide” in French), the collection is rife with signature Serre designs, updated with moody hues appropriate for the disquieting theme — black jumpsuits, jackets and bags referenced both the oil that hastens environmental shifts and the shades worn by protestors, while splashes of red are an ode to drawn blood. Tiny, delicate bags and clutched pooches hint at bourgeoisie ladies escaping mutating landscapes, while tailored suiting is upended by tonal camouflage and towel-like textiles, speaking to the utilitarian needs of a post-apocalypse society.

Serre’s crescent moon logo and draped silver jewelry enlivened the downtrodden mood, bolstering louche silhouettes informed by billowing trousers and flowing skirts. Later, the practical jumpsuit and athleisure looks were interrupted by beatific crocheted dresses and light wash denim, a moment where the storm broke and spiritual needs drive a return to nature worship — floral patterns and plenty of white layers bring the message home.

Most recently, Serre opened up to HYPEBAE about her exclusive catsuit capsule for Joyce.

Marine Serre desafió la moda como la imaginamos y presentó su visión de nuestra vestimenta tras el colapso medioambiental, en un futuro no muy lejano. • Su propuesta para la primavera verano se divide en 4 tribus, definidas por los colores negro, marrón y una mezcla de estampados. Su visión apocalíptica construyó uniformes de muaré, pantalones con relieve, chaquetas de neopreno, bufandas de seda decoradas con extravagante joyería. También se vieron propuestas con encaje, flores y tejidos de lana como representación de un mundo antiguo de lujo. • Las prendas construidas a base de otras prendas, el estampado de media luna y un casting repleto de personajes estrafalarios, son parte del sello de @marineserre_official. • #marineserre #pfw #paris #ss20 #revistamujeres #elsalvador #moda #fashionweek #upcycle
