Holi Vintage

Holi Vintage

by Marlies Dekkers

My Holi Vintage collection is designed for classical beauties. The rich continuity of Indian history inspired me. Combining my fascination for the sensual songs of poet-princess Mirabai and India’s age-old Holi festival, I created a swim collection for those of you in love with the finer things in life.
This collection is a celebration of timeless magnificence. A uniquely striped pattern accentuates your curves in all the right places. Wear my Holi Vintage in blue-ecru or red-ecru to enjoy your summer in style.

In bed with Arianne

As far as I am concerned, there is only one heiress to Edith Head’s throne, and that is the magnificent Arianne Phillips (53), twice Oscar-nominated costume designer and Madonna’s favorite style-collaborator. Like Edith, she is a tastemaker and visionary in both film and fashion. And just like her legendary predecessor, she is a feminist icon in her own right. I had the rare chance to interview Arianne and ask her about Madonna, feminism in Hollywood and why she thinks lingerie is ‘everything’. “We definitely do NOT like to hide it!”

In art school, many years ago during a nude model drawing class, I had a life changing insight: What if I, as an artist, used a woman’s body as my canvas? If you make a painting, someone will hang it on their wall. If you design a chair, someone will sit on it. But if you design lingerie, someone will wear it, and by doing so, complete your art! I had found my mission.

All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses. Powerful female icons from past and present. Although women have been marginalized for centuries, archetypes of female power have always been there. Through my designs, I bring them to you. To help us shape the world of modern-day feminism.
