Infusing surf culture and a laid-back vibe, you’ll find trompe l’oeil pants fuse shorts overlaid on tailored trousers, and t-shirts are made of textured, combed jersey that feels like beachwear-inspired terrycloth. It’s all about volume and large proportions to feel totally free. Some pieces do boast of a shorter cut and are slim-fitting to accommodate different personalities.
The patchwork of stripes and a rainbow print leitmotif halo the collection with much-needed good vibes as a symbol of peace and renewal that underscores a neo-hippy look that harks back to the 1970s.
Fabrics used also included local textiles, as Alvarez also plays with the barong while he integrates sportswear elements in a wash of brights. Key pieces include BLUEMARBLE’s first skate sneaker in animal-print patchwork, as well as a first crocodile-skin-effect bucket bag.
The centerpiece is a camouflage look that’s hand-embroidered with crystal beads and is complemented with riveted and beaded denim made in France. In the end, BLUEMARBLE brings you “…a unique silhouette combining diverse languages, as a vector of dreams and escapism.”
