Paris: Isabel Marant knows her customer better than many other designers, providing them with reliable, cool-girl staples season after season. Their loyalty will continue come Spring, with Marant’s new sporty, travel-friendly pieces. Expanding on an ever-present athletic theme, S/S 12 mixed in a hodgepodge of continent-hopping souvenirs; baseball jerseys paired with tie-dye, track pants next to Indian embroidery, tablecloth lace cover-ups thrown over one-piece swimsuits. The crafty aspect extended to talisman accessories, such as dangling bead earrings, coin belts woven together with leather and strappy, mixed-chain sandals. The combination resulted in a typically eclectic presentation full of future cult items. —Nina Stotler
