“It started with the principle of treasure costumes,” says designer Marina Moscone. “I know everyone says investing in clothes, but I think it’s a little more special.”
The concept of fashion as heirloom, or art, is not a new concept to the New York designer, but her latest collection pushes the idea further through inspiration. season about emerging from a shipwreck, bolstered by new siren shapes, a collection of artfully decorated found objects with matching silhouettes, and a sense of Light and well-washed soil runs throughout.
“Hidden treasures” – small pearls, seashells, flowers, buttons, studs and emblems – are sewn decoratively, like a lapel version of Moscone’s signature felt coat or a low-cut dress shoulder. Seashells found across beach towns have been dipped in turpentine and turned into ear cuffs while the designer’s personal collection of old crochet pieces has been recreated into evocative dresses. feeling inlaid with flowers.
Launching from a colorful resort collection, Moscone wanted to convey optimism and femininity in a new way. Sensual sophistication is the quality that Moscone designs always exude, but before autumn sent a more emotional message through more body-hugging silhouettes (a signature shoe reinterpreted in washed wool or an oversized plissé dress with suede spaghetti straps) ), leather splits and tight waistlines on tailored suits and tunics.
Newness also comes in the form of scalloped cape dresses, inspired by the works of Ed Weston, while a “Spiral Jetty” sleeve treatment wraps around the arms, held together by buttons (can be worn in a variety of ways) , pointing to Richard Smithson’s earthworks. Moscone continues its influence through lightweight technical taffeta dresses and tops with spiral overlays around the bodice and an organic, earthy bust.
