Marilyn Management enters the FW 09 sweepstakes with a Japanese inflected show package that also cleverly manages the fact that the agency brims with some of the best breaking faces on the market today. Think Eniko and Constance, Anya K and Liu Wen, Arlenis and Gracie. All 6 of these girls are major contenders for blue chip catwalk service this season in New York and that’s not counting the welcome return of Irina Lazareanu. That’s an amazing feat as the new generation Marilyn is not making its case on the back of a few scattered girls here and there. The consistency of line continues in breaking faces like Shanna K, Hanna R and Melo. The eternal appeal of that quirky yet feminine touch that makes Marilyn distinct from other management companies makes its appearance on the back of the card in the form of an anime style character. Marilyn’s key signage is stripped down these days to a capital M which is suitable for a company with so many girls set to go massive. It is an enviable position to be in.
