“What I’ve always disliked about fashion is trends,” French designer Marine Serre explained to Vogue about her Fall ‘21 collection. “When you know who you are, you don't need to change faces every morning.”

After sharpening her early career design skills at the likes of Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga and Raf Simons’s Dior, Serre burst her introspective identity onto the fashion scene to near immediate success. Interest in upcycling and deadstock design existed prior to the launch of her eponymous label in 2018, however, the now-buzzworthy sustainability trends were a mere afterthought compared to their prominence in fashion today.

Just a year prior to the brand’s first runway show, Marin Serre’s inventive use of discarded tablecloths, scarves and other salvaged fabrics was awarded with the LVMH Prize for Young Designers. While such early, instant success could often cloud the moral trajectory of any aspiring creative, the years since have proven a strong, unique compass at the center of one of menswear’s most exciting emerging brands.

Simply titled “Core”, the brand’s latest collection is an affirmation and reestablishment of the brand’s foundational planks — sustainability and upcycling, told through equal parts vintage silhouette and cutting-edge activewear. While many of the looks seem like possible garments from a cyberpunk or neofuturist headspace, Serre grounds her work in practical, humanist causes — the aesthetics of which lie on the outset of conventional ideas.

“Fashion has always been about a dream, and I don’t like that,” Serre explained about her brand’s unique design philosophy. “Here, fashion is the last thing you see. What you see first are the people.”
