Isabel Marant



Paris: Isabel Marant is one of the few designers who can produce mainstream, utterly wearable clothing while remaining runway worthy. A reliable hit at retail, Marant’s first New York boutique was greeted with rabid anticipation this year, a fervor which continues to fuel waiting lists and competition for her well-cut jackets and status-symbol boots. For S/S 11 Marant interpreted classic American stalwarts like baseball jackets, bandannas, football jerseys and denim cutoffs, lending each a feminine silhouette to contrast their borrowed-from-my-boyfriend roots. Pale pink, touches of sheer mesh and friendship bracelets were all right on trend, and a followup to her slouchy boot from last spring proves pointed toes are here to stay. Whatever the it-item, in a few months Marant’s fans will surely be waiting in the wings, both stateside and in Europe, to snap up her vision of Americana.
