Odoya, Yemanjá!

Odoya, Yemanjá!

This season, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of marlies|dekkers with a joyful trip around the world to explore the multi-sensory, multidimensional delights of dance, from samba to street dance, from ballet to Bollywood. Ancient goddess cultures honored female sensuality as the source of all life, expressed by dance. Today, dance is as important as ever: a way to reconnect to our femininity and our natural physical intelligence. A blissful expression of self-care and self-love. A radical act of feminine feminism. Time to reawaken the ancient muses of dance, starting with Yemanjá.

Odoya (greetings), Yemanjá, Goddess of Samba! The epitome of mestiçagem – racial and cultural mixture – samba is a Brazilian phenomenon with roots in West Africa’s Yorùbá culture where goddess Yemanjá once ruled supreme. Associated with peacocks, the full moon, the stars and sea, creativity and female fertility, Yemanjá loves to dance, her movements reflecting the rhythm of the waves. Together with enslaved West Africans, Yemanjá travelled to Brazil, where her rhythm and sensual powers became the soul of samba. And her journey didn’t end there. Every day, she is empowering women all over the world by helping them unlock their hips and unleash their sensuality, one shake at a time. Yemanjá’s message is clear: let’s move out of our heads and into our bodies. Let’s groove to the rhythm of our hearts. Let’s get down and dirty, sweaty and sexy. Let’s dance!

For this season’s Couture Collection, I created a wearable ode to Yemanjá and the sensual soul of samba, combining vibrant pastel shades with a fluid interplay of lines. A clever placement print creates the illusion of panels wrapping themselves around your gorgeous curves while the all over gold lurex piping gives you that carnival sparkle. Hidden wiring creates a smooth silhouette and allows the transformation from innerwear to outerwear in a matter of seconds. Just add a flirty skirt!

Dance to the beat of your deepest desires. Dare to celebrate life!

You may not think of Frida Kahlo as a typical gardener – can you imagine her in rubber boots? – but together with her beloved Diego she turned the garden of their ‘Casa Azul’ into a luscious paradise of locally sourced flora.

Ruthie Davis is just like the amazing shoes she designs: daring, empowering and totally fabulous. After making Reebok hip again and completely revamping Uggs, she launched her own brand 10 years ago and quickly became the go-to designer for feminine feminists like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. I met up with the American style maven in New York where we discovered we have a lot in common. Ruthie: “Fashion can be a tough game! I’m proud to still be standing… in my six-inch heels!”

She grew up in a town with 3 traffic lights; now Lisa Benson represents some of the top names in the industry like Chanel Iman, Chrissy Teigen and Kelly Rohrbach.
