Singapore Tatler - - STYLE -

At just 26 years old, Cor­rèze-born de­signer Ma­rine Serre is on the fast track to be­com­ing the next big thing in fash­ion, in no small part due to her beat­ing out 1,200 con­tes­tants and win­ning the pres­ti­gious LVMH Prize in 2017. She de­buted her first show at Paris Fash­ion Week in 2018 to re­sound­ing suc­cess, and her lat­est col­lec­tion, set against the back­drop of the river Seine, had buy­ers from Dover Street Mar­ket and Ssense clam­our­ing for seats on the front row. Serre's name has be­come syn­ony­mous with the cres­cent moon mo­tif which she em­ploys in all her col­lec­tions, be it in the form of ath­letic body suits lay­ered un­der silk scarf dresses for au­tumn or printed on denim jack­ets for spring/sum­mer 2019. Her lat­est col­lec­tion is a bold melt­ing pot of prints from a logo pleated dress to a fiery or­ange frock, all made from her favourite fab­rics in­clud­ing moire and jersey. In­flu­ences from her time at Ba­len­ci­aga are made ob­vi­ous in her love of slinky cat­suits, but also in the ex­treme pro­por­tion of gar­ments, such as a Pont des Arts-in­spired jacket adorned with locks and mil­i­tary jacket-dress with dozens of pock­ets. Ex­pec­ta­tions are high for this bud­ding tal­ent, but the mount­ing ac­co­lades sug­gest that her fu­ture is just as bright. Ma­rine Serre is avail­able on­line at Matches Fash­ion.
