IN SCOTLAND, WE HAVE TO EMBRACE ALL SEASONS – SOMETIMES IN ONE DAY! WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT ‘COAT WEATHER’?
Marfa Stance was developed with this exact idea in mind – how to climate control a garment and adapt in multiple ways. I needed a coat that was multipurpose, that I could actually adapt and build up for cold weather or subtract down for warmer weather. For me a coat should have the ability to do this. I especially love coat weather, so I started Marfa Stance’s multi-purpose concept with outerwear, to explore the possibilities in my favourite category and layer and build up my piece to feel cosy.
WE LOVE HOW YOUR COATS ARE MODULAR AND BUILDABLE AND CAN BE PERSONALISED TO INDIVIDUAL TASTE – WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?
I travel so much that I needed one garment that I could build, adapt and renew over a trip, rather than pack multiple garments each doing a specific job. So, I decided to create a solution to this problem and develop multifunctional pieces designed to combine style and function, that can be customised and adapted across climates, seasons and occasions.
WHAT OTHER DESIGNS CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE IN THIS SEASON’S COLLECTION?
At Marfa Stance we don’t offer seasonal collections, we offer a collection of continuity. We are very invested in hearing our customers feedback and so we develop new styles as and when we feel like something is missing in the collection or a customer gives us an idea of how to enhance our existing hero pieces that will benefit their lifestyle. For example, we are this year launching a fully reversible, buildable and waterproof raincoat, cape and hood which can be worn with our current collection. We feel that to have a part of the line that is waterproof, will work perfectly with our iconic quilts, offering our customers a waterproof layer to add to them.
