The Isabel Marant girl is just the coolest. So cool that the models came to the show wearing Marant before they walked in it on the runway. And of course, only A-list girls on this runway–Abbey Lee, Joan Smalls, Arizona Muse, Anja Rubik, the list goes on. Le sigh.
Next spring you’ll be coveting chunky knit pullovers and mini dresses, graphic printed and patchwork colored denim, varsity jackets, and tie dye everything. In addition to the varsity jackets, the show definitely had an American-hip-hop-athletic vibe–perhaps an acknowledgment of the cult following Marant has in the US. There were jerseys with faded numbers of the front and draw string track pants and the show was set to a hip-hop soundtrack. As an American, I thought a few pieces took the US-influence a little too far–like a jersey that said “America” on the back–part of Marant’s appeal is that it’s so French.
But, you know, that was just one jersey. Most of it I can see on the girls on Bedford Ave. already.
