Up until this year, Marissa Webb always had her show next to us at Ruffian in the fancy pants tent that is NYFW at Lincoln Center. I always loved when she would arrive because EVERYONE knew it. Not because of any diva behavior, but because this little munchkin of a thing would sweep in like a tornado made of sunshine and smiles. She would greet everyone with a sense of familiarity that seemed quite genuine, even though you know she didn't know who half the people were that she was wishing a good morning.
I was never really struck by any of her collections...which I always found a real shame because I wanted to love everything about this bright little lady. And then, TA DA. Her Fall 2014 collection has gone and done it.
It's a bit naughty schoolgirl gone classy as hell. Leather, fur, silk...straight-up youthful foxiness. Will it change the world or the face of fashion? Not by a mile. But would dressing in this collection make me a happy girl? Oh hell yes. It's stylish and cool without going too far. Attainable and aspirational.
I want it. Check out the entire collection here.
