A quick glance at our weather forecast next week tells us that spring is on its way (even as it threatens to snow today)… Temps will be climbing into the high 50’s so we’re hoping to break out some pretty florals to celebrate the sunny days. One designer we’ll definitely be investing in this season is Marissa Webb. With an FIT education and over a decade at J. Crew in various design roles including Head of Womenswear and Accessories Design, this Korean born and American raised designer knows how to blend elements of nature and architecture by mixing highly structured pieces with soft and feminine accents.
The new Spring 2016 collection marries leather, lace, cotton and silk for a modern mash-up that looks both effortless and elegant. We love the floral prints (of course!) as well as the bright colors and sophisticated textures.
Juxtaposing high fashion with everyday wearability is not new but we think Marissa takes the concept to a new level by pairing grungy plaids with feminine silhouettes and black leather jackets with long lace skirts.
We’re counting the days ’til spring and wishing you a fashionable Friday!
