For her FW16-17 Couture collection, Coralie Marabelle draws its inspiration from the late 19th century and the 1930s. Coralie Marabelle plays with the opposition of large-scale ornaments and the purity of shapes and mixes sobriety and extravagance to create elegant and unique garments, rooted in everyday life.
For this new collection, Coralie Marabelle strikes the right balance through various contrasts: the rigor of shapes and the fantasy of ornaments, masculine and feminine silhouettes cross, dark colors like navy blue, burgundy and anthracite contrast with bright and feminine colors like cream and red, raw fabrics become noble. Pleated and gathered poplin becomes Couture. Corduroy becomes graphic.
Marabelle, a French womenswear designer who is based in Paris, gained hands on experience working at Hermès, Maison Margiela and Alexander McQueen. After winning the Public prize at Hyères’ International Festival of Fashion and Photography in 2014 with her first collection “Dream Catcher”, Coralie Marabelle collaborates among other with Jo Malone London and La Redoute.
The FW16-17 Couture collection will be presented at the DESIGNER’S APARTMENT, showroom organized by the Fédération Française de la Couture : March 3rd – 9th, between 9am and 8pm at Atelier Richelieu (first floor) 60 rue de Richelieu 75002 Paris
