Marbek’s 5th anniversary is upon us and the brand having catapulted itself amongst Paris’ & London’s coolest kids and now Marbek is screaming for youth louder than ever. SS19 discovers Marbek takes the scenic route of street sophistication. Titled “Forbidden Temptation” – Marbek provoked ideas of using imagery around the serpent in the garden of Eden. Inspired by the summer lifestyle of its aspirational followers and respected idols, staying ahead of the trends, the collection provides a selection of must-have pieces to turn heads in any summer festival, pool parties and late night rooftop raves, an exploration of style and luxury from the street.
“We know that the Marbek customer comes to us for simple pieces with an element of our DNA whether that be a small design detail, print or unusual cut.” – MARBEK
Reinventing a classic is what we thrive from at Marbek, transforming something iconic and encouraging it lives on in a brighter light. A refreshing approach to our staple raincoats, we play with a spray paint camouflage layer on top of a detailed snake print in fluoro green, bright Infrared. A statement piece with an easier to wear Charcoal. Our vibrant print is repeated with emphasis across our swim shorts and unmistakable’ logo details.
Consisting of a clean colour pallet, seamlessly side by side attractive bold prints the “Forbidden Temptations” collection is a host to your summer favourites with the Marbek stamp of street approval. Inside the collection showcases a Scarface-inspired graphic print buttoned cotton shirt & matching shorts, it gets technical with a set of water repellent lizapoly printed red camo shorts,
also available in an engaging fluoro snake camo. Taking a casual step onto the beach shows Marbek delivers a rock red sporty track piece with a summer short featuring a neat side panel with detailed branding. Statement pieces include a split snake-skin raincoat and the full print swim shorts and revere collar shirt, complete with dismembered, bloody finger graphic, holding a
burning cigarette branded with our diamond logo. Caps and headwear using inline colourways and print. We chose this drop to launch our first range of socks and underwear and the new Staples-range “rubber logo” tees. More essentials play a part in our summer vision, we’ve included 100% organic cotton t-shirts & sweatshirts sporting the common digital printed’ logo backprint with finer snake detailings to style with any summer outfit.
