Anyone who had the pleasure of visiting this city will confirm it, Istanbul is magical.
Every corner is pervaded by the force of folklore that Maryling wants to tell in the Autumn Winter 2020/21 collection starting from the creative genius of Jean-Michel Coulon who in the twentieth century told his visions through a magnificent study of light and the texture rendered in monochromatic color-blocks which seem like landscapes.
So in his art color has a unique and fundamental role, as in the Turkish bazaars that owe their energetic atmosphere to the colors of spices, costumes, traditional objects.
Maryling tells all that in its own way in the “Grand Bazaar Hideaway“, the Fall Winter 2020/21 collection published during the last Milan fashion week.Winter classics such as blue or gray pinstripe jackets soften in the cut, abandoning the structures that are entrusted to the aviator-style bomber jackets finished with details and the internal fur which, in addition to making them a very warm garment, emphasizes their volume and structure.
The movement is entrusted to Paisley prints and Arabic-inspired graphics while the silk in patchwork print is typical of long sinuous and lush silk dresses, witnesses of a culture simple yet magnificent.
Maryling’s “Grand Bazaar Hideaway” Fall Winter 2020/21 collection also plays with the combinations of fabrics: the light wool skirts are combined with boiled wool coats creating a contrast of movements and geometries. Sometimes long coats take over and combine the modern and oversize cut with the classic elegant and refined winter patterns. Knitwear is really interesting, in addition to making use of various and eclectic colors, also energetic, plays with cuts and overlaps.
Among all the models we mention the sweater that has been destroyed and put on the pinstripe sweater with matching cannolè.
