Above all else, Marina Moscone wanted to portray her woman this season as ‘mature.’ And for us, she achieved it effortlessly and elegantly. Her Fall 2019 collection was perhaps her most refined offering yet, bringing forth a variety of textures and silhouettes all within the same simple yet sophisticated idea. This isn’t to say, however, that her brand of simplicity was pedestrian (although it got a little too reminiscent of Phoebe Philo‘s Celine at times). In fact, it’s her focus on strong shapes and quality textiles that allowed her to be as minimally modern as possible, but still fascinating nonetheless. The most ostentatious piece here was only the dark blue-striped shift with billowy feathered trims floating about, which was made for movement and not much else. The suiting, though, was the stronger point. From the light and slightly flared melon-hued opening look to the more structured iterations in either rustic wool or shimmering satin, each ensemble had a sort of strength that looked powerful on the runway. And what of the cocktail-wear? Some can go for the billowy frocks in delightful surrealist prints or a stricter selection of streamlined black dresses with bright sashes of color that gave them more dimension. With this beautiful line, Moscone just gave mature women a complete wardrobe for Fall.
