Marlet is an award-winning and inspiring set of typographic elements based on a minimal and simplistic approach to contemporary style. This type system is made for timeless elegance through numerous combinations diverting from passing trends in type design.
It borrows cues from the roaring 20s and 30s, decades that embraced women’s independence both socially and politically.
Marlet brings femininity and all its complexities into the limelight, with lean lines concluding to subtle humanist curves which reference simplicity and underline the font’s exquisite quality.
Its thick-thin, serifless strokes express the modernity of the fashion industry, breaking away from the monotone sans serif.
In contrast to ultra-feminine Didot and Bodoni, Marlet is a ladylike infused typeface that is nonconformist, multifaceted, fashionable and romantic, strong and chic, casual yet provocative.
In the event of PF Marlet's release, Parachute designed a complimentary compendium of the female voices that matter. From Greta Thunberg’s teenage activism for climate change, to Jacinda Ardern’s urgent call for a change in politics with values, and MacKenzie Bezos’ valuable tech philanthropy, through Pamela Anderson’s revolutionary evolution as a political figure against the many, or Rihanna’s superpowered influence in fashion and beauty, to the feminist porn director by the name Erika Lust who reclaims a long lost sensuality, this publication brings the voices of the women who define our era in all its printed glory.
AntiManifesto is an oversized (500x700mm) typographic compendium for the new feminine, accompanied by two posters and a comprehensive type specimen.
Whilst trendlessness is conquering the fashion industry and influencers of any kind are pushing their agenda for nothing, the Woman in the post #MeToo era is reclaiming her place in a world ruled mostly by men and she does it with elegance. This is not a manifesto. This is a compendium that celebrates Féminité Extraordinaire. Filled with data and words of feminine wisdom, Parachute’s Anti-Manifesto is not a guidebook to live by, but an inspiring, unconventional, dark, illuminating, witty celebration of the enigmatic nature of woman.
