Isabel Marant Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2015 Paris
If you want to guess what the best selling shoe of the season will be, you just need check what Isabel Marant has on her runway. It pretty much boils down what the fashion set will be putting on their feet. Wrap your head around them now, you might want them - or the high street variant - next fall: blocky, heeled boots.
The show quickly dived into the thick of things: an oversized blouson with geometric trim, followed by a fisherman sweater tucked into corsair pants. After the Wild West, it was the Wide West (of France, also known as Brittany) that took her fancy. It is never too literal, though, even when it came as a Breton stripe. Hands down the best pieces here? The cable knit sweaters with their marked shoulders. Likewise, near the end, raglan silk blouses delineated by crystal beading felt fresh and feminine, even if the following group of frilly frocks was questionable.
Isabel Marant has the uncanny knack for tapping into seminal details; today, it was the sweaters tucked into high waists, and those wide belts that are turning into a thing this season. You had better get ship shape; those high waisted trousers will not tolerate much. Beyond that, it'd been a long time since Marant had gotten it this right, and not just for her cool-girl posse.
