Spring/summer 2009: The S/S 2009 collection is not my favorite collection but overall it is truly great and inspirational – and definitely way better than her newest summer collection. A simple but intriguing, feminine yet masculine collection that certainly embodies the real Parisian street style.
I love the loose, slouchy but flattering silhouette, the boy-ish cut jackets that Isabel Marant is known for, the color palette and the subdued bohemian vibe this collection has going. The styling, taken as a whole, is not my approach – but most of the staple pieces, especially the jackets, would make my wardrobe impeccable. And hey! I see a lot of black, and I really appreciate Isabel Marant’s use of black as I wear black all year around.
