fall prêt-à-porter, paris: isabela marant
by Jeremy Danté
while in seasons past, i’ve turned my nose up at the isabela marant for nearly identical styles seen from balmain- i loved this season & was very impressed with what was created. marant, having opened her first boutique in 1998, is a child of a former model & agency director of elite models. with an understanding of how clothes should fit the female form, chic looks with dated looks were seen creatively reinterpreted. western influenced footwear from the 80’s & 90’s were seen, complete with fringe & a loose fit. denim was the headlining element of the collection this season as native american inspired details were noticed alongside use feather print, fur & wool. the collection presented an array of blazers throughout a wide ranged set of looks that touched on numerous fits, styles & forms. i loved the collections interpretation of silhouette- it was all done casually, not too much rather just enough. mindful details & clean design lines allowed the vision of this collection to be clearly translated. love.
