To wear something from Marlon Rivera is like pure bliss. His clothes are cut impeccably, creating sharp, rigorous lines with juxtaposing dramatic curves which heightens every asset of your body. I feel spoiled wearing his clothes. This season Marlon delivered a stellar collection for both men's and women's. Though Ive worn some pieces from this collection in my previous posts, I failed to mention the inspiration to his collection, which apparently, also became my subconscious inspiration to this look.
When Marlon began conceptualizing his collection, he thought of fetishes e.g. S&M. So his fabrics had these high shine that resembled latex. But knowing Marlon he was never focused on literal interpretations. After all, being an intellectual artist that means an original inspiration can have more depth. So, layer upon layer of ideas transformed the collection into something more complex. the obvious references became so blurred that the new context of his collection became a new definition. Despite the massive layer of ideas (I see futurism, diffused orientalia, a dash of 80s punk, cyber goths, 70s glam, to name a few) the collection was a strong statement of highly wearable sophisticated looks.

So when it was time for me to wear his coat for this post, I unknowingly ended up revisiting his original inspiration. Theres a bit of s&m particularly with the patent super high platform shoes and the leathery sheen of the trousers. But as a self confessed postmodernist I dont like the obvious too. So I masked the fetish concept with a dose of minimalism, and samurai undertones.
