“I design for the fast woman who is always on the go,” Marissa Webb said backstage before her show. Playing with shape and proportion, she sent out oversize coats paired with leather moto pants, a sleeveless coat over a flimsy dress, and popover tops that had a sporty feel and were worn with little skirts.

After years designing at J. Crew, it’s clear that Webb has the basics covered. Moving forward with her own label, it would be nice to see Webb push herself beyond that comfort zone.
