Clever Couture: Isabel Marant from catwalk to high street
Published 12/11/2010 | 05:00
Stylists, models and fashion editorial are all unanimous; they love Isabel Marant and wear her clothes non-stop! Marant has an insouciant chic take on fashion.
Hers is a collection of cool separates -- hero pieces that easily mix into your exciting wardrobe to elevate it to hyper-hip status.
Past seasons have been all about Marant's trophy jackets and slouchy boots, but this winter she shifted gears and embraced Teddy-boy 1950s fashion with models sashaying down the catwalk with high pony-tails and flicks of cat-like liner dressed in cropped pants and biker jackets worn with lurex knits and pointy pumps.
The winning pieces? Marant's cropped leather pants in black or red leather, as loved by Victoria Beckham and Kate Bosworth, and her chubby multi-coloured furs worn casually over pussy-bow blouses and cropped jeans.
