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.
