I strongly believe in the new generation of fashion designers that rock the world’s catwalks, refreshing the landscape, proposing different stories, avoiding the usually remakes. And Marios Schwab is one that we should keep an eye on. I mean, his designs are always intriguing, in terms of concept and appearance. Remember his Fall 2009 3D collection? that was a great attempt, and he succeeded!
Marios Schwab studied fashion at Esmod Berlin , he took a MA at Saint Martins, and launched his own label in 2005. Schwab won the prize for Best New Designer at the British Fashion Awards in 2006; in 2009 he was appointed Creative Director at Halston.
His recent collections have explored various themes, such as the historical costume, lingerie, rethinking the form of traditional dress, playing with tricky surfaces etc. Definitely, his fashion is always doubled with an intellectual investigation – all his collections are meticulously built, piece by piece. Schwab’s designs are sometimes “risky” and experimental, but still appealing and feminine. His design aesthetic successfully match the technological innovation with traditional craftsmanship.
Regarding Marios Schwab SS 2012 collection, there are beautiful patterns and smart cuts, a lot of transparent layers and unexpected style associations. Not to mention the gorgeous swimsuit – perfectly crisscrossed and cutout! It’s all so sharp and brilliant, I couldn’t help but write about it. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too.
