Founded by Becky French back in 2011, British accessories brand Marwood gets a second mention this week. In yesterday’s LC:M preview, designer Matthew Miller revealed a collaborative range with the maker to be unveiled at his Spring/Summer 2016 show on Saturday. Looking to this summer, we present the label’s Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook showcasing a collection described as “fun, bright, experimental and playful.” Made in England, the current range of ties, scarves and pocket squares takes inspiration from an obscure book of 14th century Persian illustrations, printed in 1978. Famed for their intricate, geometric forms, these Persian patterns have been produced in a series of rich reds, coppers, blues, pinks and oranges.
Pastels take over Marwood’s trademark lace constructions, soft shades placed alongside blue rinse, pale mint, lilac rose and sherbet pink. For those that lean toward monochrome, experimental artist Sigmar Polke’s photocopier work forms the basis of a series of subdued pieces centered around distorted polka dots. The smart lookbook features John Tebbs of online store and consultancy, The Garden Edit, the imagery “capturing the concentration of vibrant color and woven textures, worn with the relaxed ease of an English gardener off-duty.”
