Founded by Alexandra O’Neill in 2017, Markarian is a luxury womenswear label “combining Alexandra’s love of celestial romanticism with timeless design and modern grace.”
Recently launching her Autumn/Winter 2021 collection, it is inspired by a piece of Roman literature–Ovid’s Metamorphoses. The literature has all kinds of twists, turns, strife, challenges, and turmoil. The collection is not shy of musing attributes that keep you guessing like unique silhouettes, multidimensional fabrics, and structured “column-like” details.
From black, to bright yellow, to purple, the collection is meant to fit into everyday lifestyles, as pleasing meets practical.
The Nida Asymmetric Draped Sleeve Metallic Woodcut Dress is a bold evening piece with a daring silhouette.
Ianthe long knit wrap sweater with tie and the marca black jacquard pant is a perfect combo for a day to night look in a creamy ivory.
The Dora Patent Vegan Leather Coat with Velvet Lapel is a chic staple for any outfit and ready-to-wear.
