I have been a massive fan of this little lady's designs for a long time, so I was super excited to work with her for this post.
Marina is the talent behind the fast up and coming brand MARINA LONDON, the debut collection has been a sell out success and I can honestly say I want every single piece! Her brand focus is simple; to design great, quintessential silk tops and dresses for everyday.
Her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection has a clean, modern cut and a classic silhouette that is designed to be functional and effortless. As well as selling on her own website, she also stocks at Avenue32.com and in "Curve Boutique" in LA and New York. No surprises that these divine silk tops are being featured in editorial such as Elle, Grazia, and In Style.
I already have my Virgin shirt on order and am longing to see and shoot SS12, which I have been told to expect, bigger, bolder, brighter, with delicious corals and pastel blues. 7 tops and 3 dresses in lots of gorgeous colour variations - coming out in March.
We shoot this in the back streets of Chelsea, Marina looking beautiful as usual wore, Virgin shirt by MARINA, High topped skinny jeans from 7 for all Mankind, those divine booties are from Hobb's 30 years vintage collection, which is well worth checking out. Her faux fur gilet is from Darimeya, Coat by Givenchy, Necklace from Made
and rings - Maison Martin Margiela & Topshop.
