Spring / Summer 2011
An alluring and sensual film shot by acclaimed fashion photographer Rankin set the tone
for Hannah Marshall S/S 11 show, the second part of the 2-for-1 brand show spectacle.
Marshall’s collection proved the strongest of the two brands as the designer
continued to explore new heights of the colour black and ventured into new grounds as
she discovered various shades of grey.
It was a more delicate and almost erotic woman that starkly contrasts the 80s’ inspired leather looks for fall.
The recurrent theme of spring was sheer black fabrics of different degrees of translucent for the first half of the collection.
The second part of the collections and perhaps also the largest part saw the designer depart from her trademark black for a charcoal grey palette and more structured pieces with gorgeous panels, masterfully sewn to the hips and shoulders resulting in a couture-like effect.
An much more elegant ( and more accessible) variation of the powerful Hannah Marshall woman will be a major hit this spring.
