Marine Serre never shies away from timely climate concerns, and Fall/Winter 2020 embraces those fears with adventurous new applications. Along with survivalist-inspired accessories, the designer also offered a slightly more optimistic worldview, drawing from cultures across the globe to create a unified collection of patterns and craft techniques.
Mashed-up textiles and trims yield a diverse array of garments for both men and women, introducing a breadth of hues. Delicate white lace layers offer a gentle contrast to the layered floral-and-fringed dresses, while contrasting-paneled sweaters co-mingle with repurposed trinket jewelry and hybrid animal-patterned faux fur coats. Elsewhere, custom breathing apparatuses, 3D velvet tube scarves and custom water bottle cases co-mingle with hourglass-shaped blazers, torso-shielding duvet jackets and Serre’s signature bodysuits, demonstrating striking pattern work and clever upcycling throughout.
