Isabel Marant 2014


Paris Runway Collection / Isabel Marant 2014

OH so chic fashion designer Isabel Marant is touted to be one of the most fascinating designers
since Paul Gaultier arrived  in France.  It's all about her own style and wearable comfortable clothes with a chic mix of fur, whites, plaids , belted everything and a  hint of sex appeal .Isabel won over her audience with this collection for Fall 2014.  She is one designer to watch for trends. 
She spoke about her own way of thinking!
“I always want to do something comfortable and cozy. When the weather is like that, you never feel like being too pretty or fancy,” she explained. “So, you know, I just thought of khaki and shoulders—something that would make you feel self-confident and strong.” She might have added “sexy,” but that’s a given descriptor of femaleness in French society, and from lands across the sea, it’s a message discernable in any language: Girls get it. They buy it. They can afford it.
bonne journée
















Isabel Marant Designer


It’s about a jacket and a heel, a pant and a top, a little bit of international roaming, and, of course, the perennial excuse for putting legs on show. That’s the Isabel Marant recipe, which has to count as one of the most globally desired, democratically savored commercial quantities cooked up in France since Jean Paul Gaultier was an enfant terrible (meaning, roughly 25 years ago). François Hollande should court her as a cabinet advisor on export and the international projection of France as a still-cool country containing young, sexy people. (Joking about the “courting.”)
Isabel’s secret: She walks the talk. She is what she designs. There she was, in her furry spike-heeled boots, white leather patchworked pants and a boxy-shouldered jacket, planting smacking kisses on models (who adore walking for her) and her Parisian friends when her show was over. And then she didn’t wax lyrical about the Peruvian knit and blanket influences in her collection, the curly-shearling gilets, the fact that a padded canvas jacket looked as if it had something to do with judo, and that blanket-check shirts came into it. All she talked about was her own way of thinking about dressing during winter. “I always want to do something comfortable and cozy. When the weather is like that, you never feel like being too pretty or fancy,” she explained. “So, you know, I just thought of khaki and shoulders—something that would make you feel self-confident and strong.” She might have added “sexy,” but that’s a given descriptor of femaleness in French society, and from lands across the sea, it’s a message discernable in any language: Girls get it. They buy it. They can afford it.
