FW21 swim collection Sailor Mary

"I loved playing pirate Mary Read. Yes, it was cold and windy on the beach, but being a fan of the Wim Hof method, I embraced the elements to get into my role. And Marlies really helped me to release my inner power. Both Marlies and Mary are so strong and inspirational! I also really related to the way Mary Read continuously crossed gender boundaries. I have done the same thing in my performances, and it is incredibly empowering to explore both your masculine and feminine side."

Mary Read
mark read

Being a pirate is all about bending the rules, and for Mary Read that included gender rules. Half of the dynamic, reckless Pirate Queen-duo of Mary Read and Anne Bonny (see Couture), excelled in not one, but two male-dominated careers: the navy and piracy. She fell in love with both men and women. And she sometimes identified as a woman - Mary - and sometimes as a man: Mark. Centuries before the terms "feminism" and "gender fluidity" were invented, Mary lived up to them. Furious. Mary Read was born in England, the bastard of a sea captain's widow. Her mother would dress the feisty girl as her deceased older brother to scam money from the dead boy's paternal grandmother. It was a role she played to perfection, and when the teenage Mary wanted to join the Navy - which was forbidden to women - she signed as Mark. Starting out as a so-called 'Powder Monkey', she quickly worked her way up. When she joined the Army of Flanders, she fell in love with a Flemish soldier. They opened a tavern in Breda (Netherlands) and called it De Drie Hoefijzers. But when her husband died unexpectedly, Mary resumed her life as a man and sailed to the West Indies. As fate would have it, her ship was taken by pirates. Mary became a pirate herself and one day she joined the crew of a formidable she-pirate named Anne Bonny and her main pivot John 'Calico Jack' Rackham. With this gang of colorful, violent outcasts, Mary finally found her true home.
