For her first fashion show since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Marine Serre chose the Lafayette Anticipations contemporary art foundation in the heart of the Marais to present her Fall/Winter 2022 “Hard Drive” collection, organized in conjunction with an ephemeral exhibition that explains how she produces her “regenerated” garments.

The first floor of the exhibition showcased the recycling processes and restoration of the house’s end-of-life garments, while on the second floor, Serre displayed visionary environments that were inspired by her latest collection. The third floor improvised itself as a “museum“, featuring hacked reproductions of Old Masters’ paintings. Each of these has been variously hijacked, replacing the original iconography to make the connection to Serre’s creation.
For her coed collection, Marine Serre leaned toward punk/rock inspirations, with items like coats assembled from tartan scarves and houndstooth wool that nod to Scottish heritage. The punk attitude was expressed through necklaces and bracelets transformed from belt buckles, while the house’s signature crescent moon motif was omnipresent on various pieces. There was also a rich range of outerwear in recycled wool jacquard, quilted toile de Jouy and camouflage prints transformed into eye-catching garments with careful finishing touches.
