Marissa Webb has a knack for making the feminine masculine and the masculine feminine. Her past collections have been a girly tomboy's dream, with playful nods to military and biker styles sewn up in lace. And her spring/summer 2016 collection is no different.
The designer (and creative director of Banana Republic!) was among the first to kick off MADE's season with a refreshingly upbeat show. Lawn jazz music filled the room as guests filed in wearing aspiring combinations of silk, lace, and leather. The lights dimmed, and out walked the first model in a stunning pale-pink crepe tuxedo jacket and pant. Marlene Dietrich would have a field day. What followed were clever combinations of biker-jacket silhouettes strapped over flowing, feminine dress silhouettes. We're definitely digging the jumpers and cutout jackets. It always pains us to put away our jackets come spring, and Webb's collection is perfect transitional clothing—whether it be for the boardroom, your big job interview, or a fancy-pants dinner party.
