So, chilly days have arrived! And Elin Kling’s collection for GUESS by Marciano will be released just in time for the cold-weather season. The 29-year-old Swedish blogger has created a special line for the famous brand featuring 35 oh-so-cool and stylish pieces. “It was Paul himself who called me,” Kling told Interview magazine. “I was scared in the beginning because he asked me for 18 pieces and I thought that was so… But once I got started, I couldn’t stop.”
Kling is not just the designer but she also stars in the lookbook and the ad campaign. “It was a really fun challenge to work with Guess because our aesthetics are different,” says Elin. “I’m definitely a denim girl but I’m more minimalist. They asked me to do a maxidress and I came back with a black dress that was really sophisticated and hit right at the knees. They thought I was joking.”
Elin Kling’s collection for GUESS by Marciano includes some pretty effortlessly chic and hip goodies that guarantee to add instant attitude to any wardrobe. There are matador-inspired jackets, crop tops, relaxed tees, elegant dresses, skinny pants, and denim pieces such as jeans and chambray shirts. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention those stunning chunky sweaters! “As you know I love knits, oversized knits. I wanted to create one that almost felt like wore a big scarf, but still with a lot of structure in the fabric. To get that shape, and that turtleneck. It will come in grey, black and mustard,” Kling wrote on her blog, stylebykling.nowmanifest.com.
Another thing you’ll also be pleased to discover in Kling’s collection is the chevron. “The chevron is something you will find over and over again in my collection for GUESS by Marciano. I saw it at one of the Matador pictures, and then I just started to work on it,” Elin says. So, are you gorgeous dolls ready to rock some of these versatile and ultra-voguish pieces? Well, if you are, you should know that Elin Kling for Marciano is already available online starting October 22nd. The capsule collection will also be sold at the Marciano retail stores worldwide and also select GUESS stores around the world, as well as leading department stores beginning November 1.
