Paris: Like many other designers this season, Isabel Marant has begun to step away from the strong silhouetted looks of the 1980s — in Marant’s case moving towards a flirty and fun 1950s aesthetic (a decade that also informed the 80s with its tight capri pants and pointy pumps.) Paris-based Marant is known for consistently rolling out some of the most wearable collections at Paris Fashion Week, and this season was no different. Cropped jackets, belted party dresses (which retained some of the 80s feel) and drapey printed tops looked effortlessly chic, but the real standout pieces were the expertly tailored sequin and leather pants that were fitted and cropped above the ankle for a much-needed update to the skinny pant. Also notable was the diverse range of jackets, from greaser-inspired varsity and jeans styles to sleek blazers and even boho furs. With another solid collection under her belt and an anxiously awaited New York store slated to open in the near future, Marant is on her way to becoming a household name.
