WE PROVIDE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PERSONAL IDENTITY AND THE WORLD WE WALK IN.


STRIP OFF ALL OF YOUR CLOTHES LEAVING JUST YOUR SHOES AND I CAN TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO. IDENTITY, SELFIMAGE AND PERSONAL EXPRESSION CAN BE DISPLAYED BY A NECKLACE, PENDENT OR EVEN A USED SHIRT WITH RAGGEDY ANN TYPE. BUT IF YOU STEP BACK, TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND EDIT YOUR IMAGE TO THE BONE, ALL YOU REALLY NEED IS YOUR SHOES AND THE PAVEMENT TO WALK YOUR WALK AND TALK YOUR TALK.


ALL THE RAGE IS THE LUMBERJACK CHICK, WITH HER STRAPPING GOOD LOOKS AND HER HAIR WAVING THICK. THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID ABOUT A GIRL IN MEN’S CLOTHING. THE SPIRIT OF HER YOUTH MAKES MY HEART FEEL IT’S FLOATING. THE MARAIS GIRL. THE WARM GIRL. THE GIRL WHOM I WANT PASSES MY EYES WITH A STARE AND A FLAUNT. HOW I WANT HER. HOW I NEED HER RIGHT NEXT TO ME. THAT LUMBERJACK CHICK WHO IS STARING AT ME.

MARAISWORLD

WHO

WHAT

With the youth and spirit of an energetic race horse and the focus and drive of some of the worlds most talented minds, Marais World is the place where like-minded girls share their passion and develop long lasting friendships. It doesn’t hurt that they all have a common interest in the amazing line of shoes offered by Marais USA. These girls are known as the Marais Girls. Whether it be a posting of their favorite shoes on the Marais Blog or a picnic in Prospect Park, the Marais Girls know the latest fashion trends and how to spend time with their closest girlfriends. Words to describe the Marais Girls are fun, cute, savvy, simple, fresh, edgy, free spirited, chiqué, bold, wild and approachable. It’s easy to spot a Marais Girl.

WHERE

WHEN

Thanks to the world wide web, the communication between girlfriends and a unique fashion style, Marais Girls are being spotted all over the globe with a common interest in the beautiful and affordable shoes offered by MARAISUSA™. The Marais Girls are timeless from head to toe. This is mainly to do with the cross blend between the vintage (old) and the new fashion trends that are brought together with a quirky plaid button-up and the sleek bold colors of the Marais USA shoe line. Marais Girls also know when to play in the park and when to put their game faces on. They are all work and most importantly, all play.


WE’RE BRINGING BACK THE SPARK.

Irving in Easter Hailing from the great state of Texas, Marais Girl Catherine has been on the move since her diaper days. Traveling from Nebraska to Taiwan (and everything in between) her nomadic up bring has made it impossible for her to sit still. Whether she is experimenting with different hair styles or indulging in way too many desserts, a day with her is never a bore. As one half of Marais USA, Catherine oversees all creative projects while collaborating on the company blog with her partner Haley.

A dash of blonde, a sprinkle of some serious ambition and voila, Marais Girl Haley. Possessing an uncanny passion for correct grammar and an odd knowledge for Russian vodkas, Haley is a smorgasbord of infinite information. While attending Parsons School for Design, she cofounded Marais USA with her friend and partner Catherine. During her rare moments of free time, Haley contributes to the Marais USA blog.

Having the cutest hair on any girl below 14th st., Marais Girl Molly comes to us by the good grace of the South. With a fondness for Tequila Gimlets and a good ole Budweiser, Molly moved to New York to pursue a career in the music industry, taking after her father who is also a musician. She currently manages the band Chairlift and lives the good life winning hula hoop competitions while on tour in Europe. Waverly in Ochre

Mott in Emerald Eclectic, quick, and gregarious are any of the adjectives one would use when describing Marais Girl, Nicole. Having maintained some of the quickest jobs known to man, Nicole now works as a painter and sculptor in her Bushwick studio. Graduating from RISD, her work as taken her many places, even to 65ft. tall trees where she helped install large scale sculptures in treetops for friend Bruce Chao, a renowned artist.

When we first spotted Marais Girl, Molly, perched ever so delicately on a bench in Prospect Park, we might as well have spotted a modern day fairy. But don’t let her gamine demeanor and petite stature fool you. A graduate of Brown University at just 21 years of age, Molly ambitiously pursues her career as a novelist while contributing to numerous fashion and literary magazines around New York. In her spare time, she tends to her cheeky blog. Prince in Tomato

Music and shoes go hand in hand. The genre of music you listen to can be told by the style of shoes you’re wearing. Music is as much about identity and soul as it is about melody, lyrics and cadence. Shoes do this same thing. They give insight on the type of person you are. They have rhythm and beat as they walk down the street. The relationship between the two grounds us and let’s us move.
