Fiercely strong is the only word I can think of to describe Marta Jakubowski’s Spring / Summer 2020 collection. Picture a black and white set, women lounging in fishtail dresses except those dresses are shorts in the front and long tailed in the back paired with an oversized biker jacket. The Marta Jakubowski woman is inspired by heroines of contemporary and classic cinema, the muse being Marlene Dietrich and the character of Lola from ‘Run Lola run’. By creating layers on top of cigarette style pants, coats and oversized blouses which were neatly placed together with sleeveless blazers, the collection updates the archetype woman however keeping her classy and replacing the shyness with fierceness.
