Polly's Marfa Stance

Reversible Cropped Quilt

Tell us about yourself/ your background

I grew up in Devon, totally not in the fashion or media world, but I always loved writing. I wrote constantly as a little kid, poems and stories, but it never occurred to me I could make a job out of it. I also adored clothes. I was obsessed by the idea of glamour, despite really not growing up anywhere glamorous! I was an oldest sister, but I used to fantasise about having an older sister of my own who’d take me shopping and teach me makeup. Ultimately, I became that for myself, I read a lot of magazines and experimented a lot in the changing rooms of the few clothing shops in my hometown (Exeter), and learned a few tricks.  

How do you style your Marfa Stance piece?

I adore the volume and structure on it. There’s so much drama to it. So I’m inclined to keep the clothes under it sleek, so they don’t fight for attention. I really love it with sportswear, the bralet and biker shorts I’ve worn it with here, but can definitely imagine myself slinging it over a satin slip dress too. It’s ridiculously versatile. I love how the practicality of it is set off by the insane colour. It’s such a gorgeous juxtaposition.
