Marine Serre's latest Summer 2022 collection, Fichu pour Fichu, roots in the theme of how the future could appear if people changed their habits and became more reflective with the foods we consume, the garments we wear, and navigating life overall. The lines tropes take inspiration from these facets by discovering new ways to live amongst others as part of a global community and forming inward and external dialogues that shape our world.

As Serre's most sustainable one to date, the line comprises a combination of recycled and regenerated materials, both at 45%, including handmade moiré cloth, handmade in France. Fabrics like kaleidoscopic terry torchon, a standard article for house chores, transform and emerge as boots, boxy jackets, skirts, and tops. Similarly, Dutch embroidered tablecloths and tea towels derived from linen turn into the line's lab coat styles. The knitwear becomes popcorn fabric for its 1990s-influenced tops and dresses, and vintage textiles come together in a collaged form for contemporary mélange prints' catsuits, leggings, liquid-drape dresses, and track pants. Serre's signature moon print and second-skin boots also make their re-debut, while shamanic jewelry arranges from regenerated cutlery, glass, and stones.

Film also shares a significant role in the collection's culmination as it allows Serre to share its story further while creating a distinction between isolation and solitude through Ostal24. "The most important thing for me is what people feel when they see Ostal24 rather than what they think," Serre shared in a statement. "I want people to feel the beauty and the simplicity of being together and finding joy in cooking, eating, dancing, yoga. And at the same time, recognize that everyday, we make choices that have an impact, so how can we be more responsible in the decisions we make? Fashion is about more than draping fabric and making a profit, it can be a place where we are free to take meaningful action."

Marine Serre's Fichu pour Fichu is available now on her official website.
