Spring-Summer 2017 Collection
Marella’s Spring/Summer flirts with rock and sweetness, displaying a flowing wardrobe, because everything is flexible and nothing defined. The macro Vichy prints of the coat in woven-roving match with the animal-print mini skirt, the shirt with square patterns and maxi bow with the waterproof leopard-print blouson, while the bon ton dress features spotted polkadots. Patterns become more delicate while the collection is even more inspired by lounge-style, with a trench cut like a dressing gown in soft jacquard and a floral pajamas suit. The navy-style must haves underwent a careful revisitation, which rede nes its boundaries. Featuring a double-breasted blazer with golden buttons in jacquard, a maxi stripy chemisier dress, suit trousers display either an anchor-shaped pattern or a floral one. All of this comes in navy blue, denim light blue or cream nuances and a single bright tone: red. Bold and vibrant, red hues embellish the high-rise cropped trousers, the bare-shoulder dress and the double-breasted blazer. Red also blends the navy-style part of the collection with the more active side, where stripes are the protagonists for peplum blouses and mini jackets meet up with the new tattoo-effect print of small bustier tops. Energy is a synonym for boldness and practicality, however femininity is highlighted by the gather on the midi halter neck dress and by the technical tulle for the see-through dress.
The tropics during summertime move to the city, the graphical jungle prints characterize the full-circle skirts to wear with blouses and tops in ocean hues, shirts and blousons with vibrant tropical garden prints boldly blend with plain-coloured or Vichy-patterned trousers in a daring mix & match. The foliage of palm trees, in green, light blue, Mediterranean blue and blush pink is the must-have for the following summertime items: the slip dress, the peplum top combined with wide trousers, the full-circle skirt and the blouse with flared sleeves.
Delicate and dreamy is the occasion wear. Colours are light and lively, easy-going and super chic: emerald green, Mediterranean light blue, sky blue, oleander pink, naked or black for the mini or maxi dresses in lace, silk and rich organza. Precious fabrics de ne the slightly structured silhouettes, flowing and romantic, with small gathers and bows creating a fresh and impressive look without going over the top.

Freedom and escape are synonymous of summer and Marella Sport releases, a collection that celebrates the power of mixing. Starting from a colour range which explores blue and green hues, the guidelines include a soft active appeal and the eclectic elegance of a globetrotter. Total denim is so of-the-moment, yet mixing different tones and proportions can be a challenge, so the Spring/ Summer collection displays different fit, finishing and embroidery. Form distressed and patched tomboy, to embroidered with brooches mom-fit pants. Floral patches are colourful and stitched all over denim, bomber and techno coats, golden threads are woven with precious jacquard for the pants and Sahara-jackets. It’s a revamped traveller style that matches with flowing shirts, bandana-print blouses, jacquard boxy T-shirts and flowing pants.
As summer gets hotter, denim is lighter and gives a country-chic twist to the maxi shirt-dress and the sequin embroidered boyfriend while giving a smarter flair to the kimono jacket. Stronger colours appear in the summer wardrobe along with delicate fabrics: habutai blouses with bright yellow petals, multi-striped shorts in cotton and linen, silk muslin scarf-print long dresses and colourful lining under black macramè.
