We all know Sies Marjan as a brand that specializes in color. Every new shade becomes a seasonal must-have. Their iridescent materials are visual magnets. Sies Marjan is a luxury ready-to-wear label based in New York City. Designed by Dutch creative director Sander Lak, it signifies the first names of his father Sies, and his mother Marjan. Established in 2016 with an in-house atelier, Sies Marjan evokes a narrative of color, proportion, and subversive fabrication.
From FW19 womenswear (they design men’s too), you will fall in love with the textural richness and naturalness of their shearling peacoats, often rendered in extraordinary colors. Color gradient is also the key in an array of bold pieces. Glitter tie-dye has a dreamy effect that deviates from the LA surf culture. It feels way more artistic.
We all want one of the brand’s reflective coats that exude playfulness and an affiliation to the future. If at a creative profession, feel free to embrace neon suiting. This is the definition of a power suit. Or try the watercolor effect inspired by the works of contemporary painters like Elizabeth Peyton.
Most importantly we are into Sies Marjan knits in delicious colors, that might be accented with lurex to capture or better reflect light. The team there is focusing on the effects of light, the way fashion photographs well, or in an interesting way. But beyond color, they also excel at intricate pattern-making, one that shows real command of the craft. Asymmetries, cutouts, draping, and other elements work towards unexpected, comfortable silhouettes. Get ready for more during the upcoming NYFW!
