Hannah Marshall


For her London runway debut, Hannah Marshall explored the theme of espionage in the future as seen through the lens of the 1980s.  The inspiration translated into sleek and sculpted power shoulders and hips extended with curving talons — the weapon of choice for our international spy.  Spring found the much-buzzed-about designer playing with sheerness and opacity, mixing panels of body-hugging leather and chiffon, and also experimenting with color by incorporating electric blue and a few light neutrals into her mostly black-on-black palette.  The materials cut a severe figure, but lingerie touches and couture pleats softened the vision.

    Good analysis. I’m glad that you mention “sculpted power shoulders” because the power shoulders in this collection are more futuristic and “sculpted” than they were in the 1980s. A lot of the new power shoulders have been given more definition, and I think that is what makes them look current.
