For spring summer 2013 Marshall Artist have drawn inspiration from British vintage tailoring and Japanese workwear, mixing two strong trends and looking to create a cleanly styled lookbook and very wearable collection.
This collection is all about the looks found within it, Marshall Artist have clearly taken the view that they do not want their customer to need, or want, to look to another brand to complete an outfit that features one of their garments. It’s proved in the looks below that they won’t need to either; with each item, a focus on layering is kept in mind so that you can add to or dress down without running the risk of getting too hot as the season warms up. A 1950s vibe runs through this lookbook and it’s thanks to the use of so much light weight material that all this layering can happen.
Lightly brushed cotton, cotton chambrays and cotton fleece are just some of the key materials used throughout the collection and the colour pallet works nicely for the British Spring/Summer season, without being too bright and ‘Summery’. The palette features forest greens, ecru’s, woodland browns, classic navy and pastel shades of salmon pink, sky blue and light purple.
I have to admit that Marshall Artist is a brand that I usually look over, but seeing the collection styled like this and understanding their aesthetic a bit more, I am warming to the British brand. To get your hands on the collection yourself, head over to the Marshall Artist website.
