In the scene of Nicholas Nobro’s SS18 show “THE BODY”, the models were walking the catwalk, in historical surroundings, all embracing the body of their own. Some, in Nicholas Nybros latest collection, where the colors went from delicate nude shapes and beige nuances to dark and warm brown. The silhouette from avantgarde to oversized and even see-through dresses, with the body more or less revealed. And some, without a cloth and bare naked, as in the fairytale “The Emperor's New Clothes” by H.C Andersen. So this is still a fairytale!
The true Mariniére appeared at the seaside of France, in the late 1850’s. Surfacing as a naval wardrobe, that later on appeared on local fishermen, yachtsmen and others enjoying the seaside-life - while wearing a shirt covered in stripes.

And by that, the true Mariniére became a solid part of the fashion scene.
