It was a lovely day in Paris on Friday, and Isabel Marant's decision to hold her show outside, at the Palais Royal, proved auspicious. The sunlight illuminated a collection that was tried-and-true Marant: bohemian, laid-back, with a worldly, traveler vibe.
This season, her girl went to India, picking up a black fringed coat and blouses edged in faux pearls and lines of colorful embroidery; loose pants cuffed or rolled up above the ankle; light cotton wrap dresses, their straps trailing, that could move easily from day to evening; and rope sandals tied at the ankle. Metallics worked fluidly in the collection, appearing in a gold duster coat and wrap jacket, sequined leggings, and silver shorts and pants. Red and white striped pants with a fringed wrap skirt (shown above) were a particular favorite, as was a burgundy wrap shirt and skirt combo in congruous prints. Not only were the clothes inspired by travel, their emphasis on versatility and comfort made them well-suited for it, too. Marant devotees will have plenty of options to pack come spring break.
