MARINE SERRE - the future of French Fashion

On the wake of Paris Fashion Week, we offer you a look at the story of French up

and coming designer Marine Serre. At only 26 she can already say she won the

Galeries Lafayette prize, the LVMH prize and the respect of her peers. And this is

without saying that she only did two seasons at Paris Fashion Week.

Marine Serre was raised in Corrèze, in the South West of France. She played

tennis from a young age at a high level, which heavily inspired her to create pieces

incorporating sportswear elements, such as zips. Her CV is to die for, between

internships at Alexander McQueen (right after the designer’s death), Dior,

Maison Margiela and Raf Simons, she left her fingerprints at various fashion

houses. She now works next to Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga.

The designer says it herself, her influences have nothing to do with Parisian

chic. In her collections she plays with tackiness, bright colors, oversized

shapes. Her designs are also centered around thrifting and repurposing items

to give them a second life. For example, she created handbags out of gym balls.

From her first collection, "Radical call for love" for FW17, we remember the infamous color-blocked working gloves...
