Naples Illustrated Article, "Hat Tricks"
Quote From Article:
Marilyn Hellman gives clues on the top three trends:
" First, Hellman says, get ready to bring on the drama because dramatic and edgy shapes, and feathers are in. Next, look our for hats in shades of gray. And finally, consider a vintage 1920's look as the Great Gatsby craze is still in full swing". Hellman recommends choosing any "brim you can handle" and notes that younger women are gravitating to fascinators."

(Marilyn posed for the photo with the red hat)
Quote from Article:
The September Vogue and Elle covers declare it: Fall fashion has arrived. But the ankle-length furs and leather gloves that monopolize the magazines and streets of Manhattan won’t quite work in our post-summer swelter.“It’s really different when you’re talking fall in Florida,” says Marilyn Hellman, owner of Marilyn’s boutique on Fifth Avenue South in Naples.That doesn’t mean, however, that Southwest Floridians have to stick to sandals and sorbet hues as the humidity lessens. Runway-ready looks worthy of the chilliest fall can be pulled off with just a few tropical wardrobe adjustments. Read more in the actual article in News-Press.com!

Naples Illustrated Article: "The New Linen Closet" by Jenna Choate
Quote from the article:
Think no more of linen as primarily used to style your table for a fabulous dinner party, with tablecloths, napkins and chair covers. Now there is a new type of linen in town, taking it from the dining room to your closet.Marilyn's Distinctive European Fashion on Fifth Avenue South is showing women how to incorporate linen into their wardrobes. Marilyn Hellman, owner of the upscale European-style boutique, has partnered with Naples seamstresses to create limited-edition pants made from luxurious Irish linen."
"Its summertime in Southwest Florida! As the most breathable fabric in the world, linen is the perfect tranquilizer to keep you cool and calm all summer long. In the hierarchy of fabrics, linen reigns supreme. It can hold more moisture, which prevents static build up. The addition of stretch to the linen fibers has given the fabric a new dimension. It is comfortable, washable and resists creasing.
What’s more, Marilyn’s new line of linen pants is made in America. “I felt anything that had my label on it should be made in the United States,” she says of her pieces. “In creating these pants, we’re looking only for materials you would never see in a store because they are so high-end.” The pant is offered in pencil and flared styles that create a fresh and contemporary option for women to update their wardrobes. The spandex stretch of the pant conforms to any body type with a modern take on traditional (and traditionally wrinkle-prone) linen. Marilyn is so confident in the line, she offers free alterations for as long as you own the pant. Marilyn’s offers more than just the exclusive linen pant. The store stocks a gorgeous array of European shoes, fashions and accessories hand-picked by Marilyn Hellman herself."
