Born in Korea and raised in the United States, Marissa Webb has always had an intimate and creative relationship with fashion. For her first Pre-Fall collection, Marissa Webb focuses on structure and ease; impeccably tailored pieces are given an everyday wearability through relaxed cuts and luxe, comfortable fabrics.

Staying true to the chic, yet tough aesthetic that has become synonymous with the Marissa Webb brand, Pre-Fall 2014 brings masculine edge to otherwise femininely elegant pieces, such as blazers with leather detailing and wool box tops with delicate lace sleeves. This season’s palette goes back to basics in a palette of black, white, and grey, with a fresh take on a classic plaid print of grey/green/blue that is double layered and off-set to create a visual vibration.

Marissa Webb emphasizes comfort and quality this season, without sacrificing a put-together, sleek look. Each piece is versatile and can be easily mixed and matched, resulting in an effortlessly polished collection. The Antonella relaxed slouchy trouser is cut in fine Italian wool crepe, illustrating the designer’s combination of cool ease with a luxe feel. The Valentina Lace and Verona Crepe Dress offers a modern, minimal take on the little black dress and can be easily topped with the Anya Tuxedo Jacket, with exaggerated lapels and leather sleeves. The culmination of these versatile separates come together to create a fluently refined look and a nod to the designer’s own personal style.

Pre-Fall 2014 strengthens the point of view Marissa Webb has established through her previous three seasons, creating a wardrobe for the sophisticated, confident woman. Cool yet refined, the Marissa Webb Pre-Fall 2014 collection combines contradictory elements that encourage a woman to embrace their individual style.
