something about mari
Something About Mari is a small, personal collection, reflecting my life and where I stand right now. It’s a culmination of uphold values, creativity that fuels me and a lot of experience in the field of fashion. I am a designer and therefore co-determine the values of the system.
With S.A.M. I wanted to create something on a smaller and conscious scale; limited editions-runs, sophisticated, comfortable and well-made, yet absolutely affordable. Something of good material (sustainable, lasting), something with international style, but with Dutch roots - no doubt. Something that leads to a compact and conscious wardrobe; not following the usual many fashion-seasons, but bringing new batches with up-dates added only when the time is there. I thus ensure the items to be exclusive and hopefully become favorites and essentials in the closets of my customers. Since I always work in a specific “Marí’s “ color palette it's easy to build up a wardrobe, based on this consistency.
Attention I pay to all aspects involved, not only in designing, but also in selecting fine qualities ( sustainable and natural by preference), choosing colors, keeping a close watch on proportions and fitting or seeking perfection in the make. I can only do this by working closely with my long-time relations, the makers. Small family-run factories, they are the other experts and willing to make the limited editions runs I want.
Inspiration I find in a constant influx of things I see, people I encounter, art I experience, nature that surrounds us. My antenna is “on” all the time, pointed out to pick up.... something. Trends? Maybe. Short-term craves? No thanks.
Instead I rely on my own handwriting and style and prefer you to recognize a subtle “je-ne-sais-quoi…”
