In a time where the world feels off-balance and uncertain, The River Answer invites you into a place that feels steady and calm.
Natural fibres connect you to nature - reminding you of Mother Earth and our obligation to honour her. And the intentional use of blue, in tones of ink and jade, further suggest a connection to the ocean, to the sky.
Silk pieces, such as the adored Isabella Skirt and Karie Dress (both coming soon), sit lightly and soft against the skin and when paired back with knitwear, like the Darcie Cardi, intend wearers to feel comforted, strong and safe; confident in their skin, despite the unknown.
Signature Marle silhouettes, such as the Mimi Jumper and the Mason Sweater, as well as favoured styles from seasons before, like the Pepper Shirt, Sal Dress and Santi Jumper, make repeat appearances, bringing a sense of familiarity as well as being a gentle nod to the brand’s ethos of longevity and timelessness.
In the refined aesthetic Marle is known for, each piece is first designed around its fibre then finished with detail, proportion and fit. Pieces like the Galla Vest (coming soon) and the Agnes Jacket (coming soon), effortlessly combine minimal silhouettes with elevated, understated detailing such as the cut-out on the Galla and the standing collar and subtle contrasting lining on the Agnes.
“Globally, we’re living through an extremely challenging time and we need comfort. Warmth. Familiarity. We need this alongside the unexpected and the extraordinary - and that’s what we hope The River Answer gives our Marle women."
The Gisele Dress in silk and cotton carries an air of effortless ease, it’s oversized fit can be worn off the shoulder or tied tighter at the back to bring structure to the neckline and the romanticised Faye Top paired with the Willow Pant combine classic tailoring with a feminine and modern fit.
The pairing of black, charcoal and rich blues signifies the change in season - warm, rich and contemporary - while sage, clover, espresso and silt maintain the connection to the natural world around us.
