Mom’s the word. At Sies Marjan designer Dutch Sander Lak (36) let his mom Marjan (his father’s name was Sies) walk the runway. And not just her, his biggest critic, was part of his model cast. Childhood friends and model friends like Kaia and Presley Gerber (their mother Cindy Crawford came out to support them) were present too. “This collection’s cast is made of a group of people I love and admire, many who are part of my daily life. Friends and family, Sies Marjan coworkers, great models we love, and new ones we’re just getting to know. In a sense, this group is my home too”, Sander Lak said.

The color palette was on point as always with Lak, who worked under master colorist Dries Van Noten. Colors like ocher yellow, violet, deep red, bright blue and, burgundy and lilac were vibrant and fresh. Quite some complete crispy white looks as well. But besides color Lak experimented with materials and textures too. He came up with painted leathers, washed cottons, and show stopping croc-mimicking plastics.

Most impressive were the layered looks. Like the khaki colored look Malgosia Bela wore. Like the pinstriped blue ensemble Charlotte O’Donnell sported. Or the pink colored skirt + coat Dree Hemingway (who by the way rocked a fresh, super short new haircut) introduced. And the leather burgundy outfit that followed up. Anwar Hadid walked the show in a printed suit and a heavy gray vest.

Mom looked stunning and comfy in a nautical striped design. Proof that this collection has a bit of both; edgy vs. comfy. Those features might need to come together a bit more. But overall this was another strong, fresh and wearable line up of Sies Marjan looks. Mom Marjan will be so proud.
