LFW: Marta Jakubowski Autumn Winter 2018 Collection
Discover Marta Jakubowski Fall Winter 2018/19 collection presented during the ongoing London Fashion Week.
Recall the video for Whitney Houston’s ‘I’m every woman’? Her sassy smile and pregnant belly. For AW18, Marta Jakubowski celebrates women – our versatility, complexity, ambition and physicality – in a collection that evokes the early nineties, the days of shoulders and waists; The Bodyguard, Turlington and Crawford, all through the lense of her layered aesthetic. The collection is both celebratory of womanhood and reflective, paying homage to the sartorial choices of Marta’s late mother – the professional dress, and longline cashmere coat – and her own childhood clothes, loved and long-lost. Marta’s personal trajectory towards womanhood is mirrored in her aesthetic evolution, from the vibrant draped tailoring and cut-out pieces of past seasons, to this season’s adaptable mix & match separates, party dresses and reconstructed trouser suits – a little bit grown-up, a little bit business. Layering techniques embrace the female form, while multiway fastenings offer us choices, and therefore power, and the trouser dominates. – from Marta Jakubowski
