Founded by Angel Salti in 2008, London-based, cutting edge design label Marimodo entices you with its fusion of European elegance and Asian influence. The designs show low key elements of luxury with an elegant and sartorial touch.
The design label has recently made its debut in Spring/Summer 2012. A striking mix of urban noir evening wear, with billowing silk silhouettes of chiffon dresses in soft shades of lilacs, blues and burgundy. As well as black paired with the complimentary daffodil in the form of a tailored blazer and abstract centre pattern shift dress. Not to mention tailored separates in gorgeous wet-look, shimmering golden silk or black pencil skirt, teamed with a pastel silk shirt. This subtle palete of timeless colours gives the collection the upmost sophistication and the gentle textures give the pieces a glimmer of insouciance.
This season, Marimodo are currently showing their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. There is something bewitching and raw about this collection. The model stands with an alabaster complexion, whilst velvet, lace, sheers and fur create a rich, gothic, oriental inspired ensembles in hues of ox-blood, plum, off-white and ebony, giving the collection a dark elegance.
