Coralie Marabelle: new life for jeans

French designer Coralie Marabelle started out at Studio Berçot in Paris and went on to collaborate with major fashion brands like Hermès, Maison Margiela and Alexander McQueen. She also won the Public Prize at the 2014 International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères, with her debut collection, “Dream Catcher”.

For Spring/Summer 2018, Marabelle was inspired by a contest launched in 1974 by Levi Strauss & Co.: the “Denim Art Contest”, which invited clients to decorate their jeans with embroidery and patchwork inserts.
The collection brings to life a range of pieces that immediately recall the 1970s and hippy communities based on ideals such as freedom of expression and sharing instead of owning. Bold color pairings and original cuts are the real turning point, making Marabelle stand out again after her first couture-to-wear catwalk at the Fall/Winter 2016-17 Paris shows.
