Isabel Marant SS14

Adorning French insouciance with frills, ruffles and lace, in a desert colour palette

PhotographyLea ColomboPhotographyJacques HabbahTextDazed Digital

Initial reaction:

Bo Peep got sexy.


Marant’s favoured French insouciance, in black leather, peeps of lace and statement embellished jackets.

Stand out looks:

A perforated white grid waistcoat, with a boxy outsized cut and collar.

Unexpected details:

Black ribbon belts and lace triangle bras under open jackets were a not-so-subtle lingerie reference.


No look was complete without ruffles or lace.


A soft floral in the palest green, yellow and cream, on chiffon, frilled camisoles and blouses.


A take on the T-bar heel, with a wide strap that met the ankle at a bow – the best were black and studded.

Colour impression:

A muted desert palette of tan, grey, cream, blush and washed out green.

For the kids:

Super short flippy leather ra-ra skirts, and a grey felt mini with laced fastening.

Left us wanting:

The heavily embellished khaki green jacket, and fine mosaic-like metallic cropped trousers.
