MARINA RAPHAEL SS19 COLLECTION PRESENTATION

Marina Raphael’s SS19 collection, titled “Homage” was presented on Tuesday, March 19th at the Goulandris Natural History Museum in Athens, Greece.

The museum was transformed into a golden field of straws where Marina’s designs revealed a summery sensation. Natural materials such as leather and straw embellished with Swarovski crystals composed a collection of elegant handcrafted bags of the highest quality. The historical museum ignited the designer’s passion for nature, and became her greatest source of inspiration behind this collection.

The summer-themed launch party was attended by old and new friends who travelled from all over the world to see her dynamic creations. The A-list style set included international names like Anna Vitiello, the former editor of Harper’s Bazaar and co-founder of AndFinally blog, the British singer Pixie Lott, Victoria Secret’s models, Gizele Oliveira and Nadine Leopold, the fashion blogger Doina Ciobanu and Diana Langes-Swarovski, Paulina Swarovski and Alexandra Swarovski from the Swarovski family.

Last season’s Crystal Robot, also made an appearance, alongside our brand-new life-size Riviera mascot and the brand’s “Fashion Police” who entertained the guests with their crystalized uniform and “arrested” whoever wasn’t wearing a Marina Raphael bag.
