It is 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon inside the Sies Marjan studio and offices in New York’s garment district. In just over 24 hours, the brand’s designer, Sander Lak, will present his fall 2019 collection for the three-year old label, but Lak and his team are nowhere in sight. Aside from two seamstresses silently sewing in a back work space, the office seems closed for the weekend.
“Hello! We’re just finishing our lunch,” exclaims Lak, peeking around the corner from the office kitchen, before bounding over for handshakes. With his loping stride and messy blond hair, he projects a sense of youthful ease. Inside the kitchen, several of his team members sit at stools around an island counter, eating and conversing. To say the atmosphere is relaxed compared with that of most other brands’ studios on the eve of a show would be an understatement.
“It’s always this calm,” Lak says later, in a room lined with racks of vividly hued pieces from his new collection. Models will arrive in steady succession over the next few hours for fittings and final castings. “We’re very organized here. I don’t like the drama; I don’t like stress. We have so much other stuff going on in life, we don’t need to torture ourselves for beauty.” It’s refreshing to hear from the 35-year-old designer, especially given that Sies Marjan has become one of the most anticipated shows on the Fashion Week calendar.
First, there’s Lak’s unapologetic use of color — a brand pillar, of sorts. From icy pastels to rich indigo and scarlet ombrés, each season has its own new vivid palette. For many New Yorkers with mostly black wardrobes, Lak’s chromatic world feels like a thrilling defibrillator jolt. But for the Dutch designer, such colorful gestures aren’t forced or conceptual so much as innate: He’s been known to get feelings of nausea from staring at certain colors, while others induce a sense of calm.
Since its launch in 2016, the brand has been met with much acclaim. Its first collection was picked up by nearly 30 retailers around the globe (today there are 150). Part of that immediate success can be attributed to Lak’s pedigree: Before launching Sies Marjan, he was the head of design at Dries Van Noten for five years.
Soon Lak’s mother, Marjan, arrives at the studio. She’s a familiar figure in the office, not only because her name is half of the label — his father was Sies — but also because last season she actually appeared on the runway, along with several of her son’s close friends. That deeply personal collection was inspired by memories of Lak’s father, who died when he was young.
For fall, Lak turned to the idea of love, which informed several obstacles he opted to present himself with early on. “I really wanted to challenge myself with these limitations I have, or things I don’t like — like lace,” he says, thumbing a sleeveless tangerine orange lace dress. “I hated lace, actually. So it was really about what I could do to make myself love the lace.”
Of course, it takes a certain ease and confidence to even attempt such a creative exercise. And indeed, Lak who never lived in the same place for very long during his childhood — his father’s work in the oil industry took the family all over the world — is finally feeling settled. “I feel good in New York,” he says. “I feel good here at work, in my apartment and my life here. It fits.”B:
