Building on her In Praise of Shadows Collection, Sarah Bond explores the myth of the Goddess Marici; revered by Samurai and invoked at sunrise to achieve victory before going into battle.

Marici means light or mirage.

Samurai would invoke her powers to escape the notice of their enemies.

Sarah Bond builds explores this myth, whilst staying true to her strong, feminine, architectural aesthetic.

Waist cinching and gure attering, the adjustable Marici corset belt is made from structured neoprene with leather corset lacing.

It is designed to be worn in two ways, ensuring a play on silhouette, whilst beautifully accessorising a variety of gar- ment shapes.

The Marici Corset Belt is the ultimate statement accessory.
Born in London, British Lebanese designer Sarah Bond spent her formative years in Sierra Leone and Lebanon. Returning to London to pursue a successful career in finance, Sarah continually felt her lifelong creative calling for fashion and couture. Leaving her desk job behind, she earned a foundational degree in Art & Design from Wimbledon School of Art before studying Womenswear Fashion at Ravensbourne College of Design & Communication. Sarah honed her craft at Katherine Hamnett, Roland Mouret and Saville Row tailor Chris Flourentzou, where she developed a deep respect for sartorial menswear techniques. Made in Britain, from initial concept to final product, Sarah values the importance of maintaining British workmanship. Her bespoke ready-to-wear garments perform gender with a style that is at once both familiar and innovative, working sensually yet in powerful harmony with the female form. Using high quality silks and techno textiles, she draws on her diverse cultural experience to design digital prints from scratch. The clean lines, bold statement pieces, and colour blocking of her modern aesthetic are steeped in the richness of her inimitable tailoring. As a result, Sarah Bond’s collection embodies both exceptional fit and a new form of elegance.
