Isabel Marant Pre-Fall 2019

For pre-fall, Isabel Marant offered a collection of strong silhouettes for the fashion-minded in want of ease —  toeing the label line. She emphasized shoulders, her signature, which felt especially prominent this season, offering them firmly, power-suit style, on a collarless boiler suit as well as a double-breasted plaid suit jacket. They were accentuated in layers — four pleats on each side — on a printed dress, and slowly gave way to wide, puffed out sleeves on a comfortable rendition of the burgundy boiler suit.
Standouts included a buttery, brown leather blouse and trouser set — slightly gathered at the shoulders, the top had slightly bulky sleeves and was paired with elegant, high-waisted trousers in the same material. A tan corduroy dress was handsome in a similar way, with puffy sleeves that were tightly cinched at the wrist in a nice balance of structure and flow. Elegant, monochrome looks, in both cases, which highlighted the stylishness of the cuts.
Outerwear included a fuzzy ivory wool coat and an ultra-light rain trench. The label continues its expansion, with a new store in Milan and plans for further locations in Brussels and Barcelona in the coming months.

Isabel Marant Étoile RTW Fall 2019

For her secondary label, Isabel Marant doubled down on comfort, considering what she would want to wrap herself up in when the weather turned chilly. A fuzzy plaid shirt thus became a poncho, its zip-up collar adjustable for extra warmth. An oversize, quilted vest, too, looked cozy — it had texture, in the form of braid patterns — and smart, as well, cinched at the waist with a leather belt. The designer was equipping her young, fashion-conscious customer with solid outerwear that doubled as a protective layer.
Another example came in the form of a thick brown leather jacket, like a pilot’s jacket from the last century, repurposed for a new era — the shoulders had Eighties-style extra puff. A pale purple sweatshirt was embellished with quilted shoulder patches, and an acid-washed jean jacket had a fuzzy wool collar.
For dressier occasions, she offered an elegant black lace dress, snug in all the right places for sexiness, and an extra ruffle for a touch of the romantic. Her peasant blouses had large sleeves and two ruffles on each shoulder. 
She kept her waists high and the sweaters chunky, for the most part. The collection was all about being in the comfort zone: the

Isabel Marant RTW Fall 2018

Isabel Marant did not invent the cowboy boot. Nor is she responsible for its newfound fashion relevance — that is owed to Raf Simons at Calvin Klein and a bit to Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy. But it will be by Marant’s hand that Western boots — specifically, the steel-toed booties and robust thigh-high styles from her fall show — will be on the feet of trend-absorbing, fashion-loving women far and wide next season. If cowboy boots were a stock, now would be the time to buy in.
Her Western-inspired fall show was a barn-burner of very hot fashion, a display of Marant’s razor sharp instincts for what a broad swath of women — and now men, too — want out of their clothes: a sense of freedom, comfort, sexiness, sophistication and fun. Even before “Jolene” came on the soundtrack and got toes tapping on the plywood floor, it was obvious there was a Southwestern charm to the lineup. The first model out was Anna Ewers — nothing between her short blanket-striped trench with a sharp leather collar and tawny cowboy booties but her toned legs. A Seventies brown-and-black fur jacket with shiny leather lapels and long fringe that might’ve belonged

Front Row at Isabel Marant: VIP-ier Than Ever

PROJECT RUNWAY: Alicia Keys, Emily Ratajkowski, Liya Kebede, Jourdan Dunn and Caroline de Maigret figured among a noticeably bulked-up VIP contingent at the Isabel Marant show on Thursday night. There were also the power couples, including show producer Alex de Betak and his wife, Argentinian style icon Sofia Sanchez de Betak, who mingled with the guests.
In the countdown to lights down, de Betak chatted about a company he’s cofounded called Bureau Future, a digital creative atelier that develops contents for events produced by Bureau Betak as well as special projects. “This season, we did a soft start, which has been very successful, from projects for Alexander Wang to YSL to Yazbukey, with a few more fun things coming out for the end of the week,” he said.
Sanchez de Betak, who is working on the launch of Chufy, a travel-inspired brand working with artisans around the world, said the first collection will be dedicated to her homeland, with gaucho pants, riding boots and the like. She’s also releasing a book, published by Assouline, next month. “It’s a travel book about off-the-beaten-path special destinations like private houses.”
Keys, who had her other half, music producer Swizz Beatz, in tow, was more coy about what’s coming next. “Nothing to reveal yet,” she

Anna Ewers Heats Up the Kitchen in Isabel Marant’s Spring Campaign

Isabel Marant’s spring 2017 collection was about “casual femininity,” as the designer said at the time of her runway show. For campaign time, she enlisted Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to capture that spirit by shooting model Anna Ewers in ordinary everyday atmospheres in New York with styling by Geraldine Saglio. In one shot, Ewers wears a printed peasant blouse with heathered HotPants and a corset belt while playfully biting the strap of a handbag in front of a fridge in a kitchen. The fridge reappears in another kitchen scene featuring Ewers in a ruffled one-shoulder crop top and flared pants. And in another, she sits splayed atop filing cabinets in a one-shouldered printed dress. It’s Ewers’ first Marant campaign.
