Laid back with a twist…
If you have been following my Friday Focus features for a little while you’ll know that they aim to bring you fresh designers and talent from the Middle East that you may not have come across. Some might not think this, but Dubai actually stocks some great international brands too and one of the best places to find them is at Harvey Nichols-Dubai including this fresh new designer Maggie Marilyn.
The easy to wear feminine pieces are becoming more prominent in modern women’s wardrobe from the likes of Magda Butrym, Ellery and By Malene Birger. They all offer a great cut and a unique design which takes them from simple to statement and that is what the New Zealand designer Maggie Marilyn offers. What is so great about her approach and what seems to resonate with a modern day shopper, is her desire to produce everything in her home country using local materials.
I personally rate her denim pieces as well as flared trousers, a shape that is proving to be popular well into the next couple of seasons. Ruffles also play their part and are a gold way to add texture when styled with clean cut pieces like a white shirt or a pencils skirt. Her Fall 2017 collection also offers a sportier touch to dressing which I’m a huge fan of and will be styling a sporty tailored look soon.
