Paris68, a new women’s label created by Marcella Lindeberg, one-half of the married design consultants to William Rast (husband is Johan Lindeberg of J. Lindeberg), debuted her high-end women??™s wear collection during New York fashion week. In the audience were Justin Timberlake with girlfriend Jessica Biel in full support along with fashion powerhouses Carin Roitfeld, Nina Garcia, Terry Richardson and Jefferson Hack.
Paris68 was conceived in her studio in Soho, New York, and produced exclusively in Florence. The 30 piece collection exudes a bold modern woman reflecting Marcella’s personal style of rockstar glam and her journeys in life. Metallic materials are incorporated onto the dresses, powdery suede materials to provide a dusty feel, mohair was chosen as a preeminent fabric to add a dishevelled contrast to the firmer leather and metallic elements in the form of intricate embroideries and embellishments.
The result, Paris68 reshapes the female silhouette with a range of capes, sartorial jackets, body-con dresses (fiercely pushing the hem line limit), leggings/skirt combinations and the application of textural leather variations on evening dresses. Definitely a label to watch out for.
With a strong background in the denim world with J. Lindeberg’s denim line and creative design input with William Rast, I would not be surprised if Marchella adds denim into her collection in the future. But in the meantime, we’re anxiously waiting to see where her line can be purchased. I can see myself wearing her leggings/skirt combination and a studded denim vest as a staple for next fall.
