Clever Couture: Isabel Marant from catwalk to high street
Published 11/02/2012 | 06:00
'Global traveller' is Isabel Marant's inspiration this season. Everything from American football sweats to Navajo knits, Indian embroideries and patchwork jeans graced her runway show. Faded shades of coral, lemon, khaki and indigo added to the lived-in look.
A selection of casual, eveningwear finished the show, including lace tunics, pewter thigh-hugging minis and ruched dresses with metal-disc detailing. Think covetable rucksack treasures from a trip around the world. All dishevelled hair and nonchalant cool, the look is effortlessly sexy.
This chunky knit, check shirt and lemon jeans combo demands heels and a sexy glint. The cardigan needs to be slung loose and low with the shirt buttons casually undone. Judging by the success of Marant's past few seasons, this French designer certainly has her finger on the pulse.
