The AW15 Marla London collection presents arm candy of the moment which bridges the gap between cool femininity and a laid back nonchalance, this collection is effortlessly wearable seven days a week.
Considered design, exciting fabrications and contemporary styling are at the core of this collection. Expert craftsmanship has been used to create beautiful fittings with faceted angular edges making them both functional and striking.
The colour palette moves through from warm marsala, magenta, coral and dusty pink through to teal, midnight blue, mineral grey, tan and neutrals, with highlights of Marla signature fabrications of animal print, snake soft metallics and quilting which adds texture and richness.
The inspiration, as always, comes from Marla Girl's hometown of London, those dark, moody and eclectic winter nights are reflected in rich warm colours and structured silhouettes. This is a collection for strong independent women who share the Marla Girl aesthetic.
