Relaxed looks in Isabel Marant 2010 Runway
ON a day when Dior, Lanvin, Martin Margiela and Vivienne Westwood are vying for the Paris fashion headlines, Isabel Marant would be hard pressed to compete – but hers is an aesthetic that produces clothes women want to wear without necessarily demanding mega-watt attention.
Next summer we’ll have fun in striped mini dresses of silver lamé, grey, pink and turquoise, worn with fine tweed glitter-edged jackets, or red chiffon ra-ra dresses with the thinnest spaghetti straps.
Feathered earrings and chainmail ribbons wound around the neck added feminine touches to an eclectic collection featuring fuchsia, low-crotched tracksuit bottoms tucked into suede boots, muslin T-shirt dresses, blazers with built up shoulders and tan suede single-shouldered dresses that had a touch of Wilma Flintstone about them – not the first time that we’ve seen Stone Age inspiration this season.
It was sassy, sexy and wearable and festival goers will have plenty to choose from next season.
