Paris: For autumn/winter 15/16, Isabel Marant continues to dress the chic city woman in flirty mini skirts and dresses paired with more substantial sweaters and jackets. This collection carries an overall nautical and utility influence combining sailor shank button details and nautical stripes, with utility jackets, gold bouillon cord frogging, and epaulettes. Patterns are a mixture of ethnic influenced ikats and two-tone sailor stripes. Sweaters are a key category within the collection with cable knits, intarsia stripes, and shank button details on crew necks and zip-front cardigans with sharp shoulders. Waists are a focus throughout the looks with ultra high-waisted pants and skirts while belts also accentuate the midline with wide wrapped obi styles. Single drop earrings and high shaft booties completed the looks. –Jaclyn Jones
