Marine Serre went back to the drawing board for Fall/Winter 2021, “CORE.” As documented in companion pieces — limited edition book and two-part documentary — the collection is a response to the fast-paced consumption driven by fashion industry, comprising a variety of disparate silhouettes informed by regenerated and recycled textiles.

Half of the collection is comprised of regenerated fabrics — synthetics created by upcycling existing materials — and the other half incorporates “recycled fibers,” which presumably includes a variety of deadstock textiles that partially circumvent the production process. Serre is also debuting a diffusion line of sorts for FW21, the White Line series of regenerated clothing and accessories that will sell at “reworked” price points ostensibly more approachable than Serre’s mainline output.

Serre’s latest apparel designs run the gamut from tweaked signatures — her fan-favorite cargo-pocketed jacket now sports a hand sanitizer-sized nook — to enormous fleece bedsheets, cut into vests, skirts and enormous parkas. Patchworked linens, silks and denim appear throughout, accompanied by weatherproofed leather and a wardrobe’s-worth of tiny pouches, purses and shoulder bags. Serre’s crescent moon pattern graces elastic base layers and tailoring alike, the latter accented by unexpected cargo pockets that ground Serre’s fanciful designs with essential utility.

“This last year has been difficult for everyone, but there is no longer any question about it, things must be done differently,” Serre said in a statement. “We want to bring Ecofuturism to the streets.”
