Marissa Webb Resort 2016

Inspired by photos of her grandfather in 1940s military garb, the designer's resort silhouettes were generously proportioned but cinched at the waist to keep things feminine.

The contrast of masculine and feminine is the core of Marissa Webb’s aesthetic and she doesn’t see it changing any time soon. For resort she directed the look through a 1940s military surplus lens after looking at photographs of her grandfather from the time. Army green utility jackets with slouchy, rolled-up sleeves and necklines were generously cut but cinched at the waist — a detail that recurred on cutaway trench dresses, vests and blazers — to feminize the proportions.

 

The clothes were ideal for layering. And Webb’s knack for customizing classics, such as a pink trench vest that could double as a dress, a simple blazer with a silk back and a lace shirtdress with a veiled cutout back, make interesting pieces that can go a long way in a wardrobe.
