BIOGRAPHY

Launched in 2013, by New York fashion photographer Randall Bachner, Marrakshi Life embraces comfort and craftsmanship. Taking key style elements from the traditional Moroccan wardrobe, an in-house team of local artisans helps create original, contemporary, and wearable design pieces. Using the skill of traditional Moroccan weaving practices and a desire to take this sartorial heritage forward, Marrakshi Life uses ancient techniques to create clothing that is authentic yet with a fashion-forward urban twist. Randall is committed to supporting responsible manufacturing via sustainable, low impact production methods. He describes his atelier in Marrakech as a community rather than a factory. Visitors to Marrakshi Life can experience the family feel whilst viewing the whole process from textile creation to finished design.

 
COLLECTION
 

ML Collection 6 - Desert Palm - SS20
This new collection for SS20 is a celebration of DIE HARD, don’t be afraid COLOR. This season we took the chance to work with yarn colors outside of our core color scheme. Lavender / cosmos pink / mimosa /apple / blush / forest / army / canary / chartreuse. Inspired by the desert bloom and the Marrakech palm trees. All together reminiscent of a 1970’s sherbet color palette. We are featuring some of our classic ML styles with a twist. For example our ML Boiler Suit is adorned with an aplique of palm branch. Our labcoat as well has been decorated with silhouettes of the gran saharan sand dunes For SS20 our oversized shirt has also been reinvented with a large collar and then pieced together with six different MULTI COLOR scarf weavings, creating a graphic and bold statement. As we are presenting our first catwalk show we also kept in mind movement and how we wanted some of the pieces to flow effortlessly down the runway. To achieve this we have handwoven a group of light weight fabrics to create these delicate moments. For new styles we have chosen to focus on garments with volume debuting new pieces like the trench jumpsuit, an oversized blanket coat , a long and short cape with a dramatic collar, and a French cuff shirt with the cuffs extended to the ground.
