Isabel Marant AW15

A Breton stripe and a new it-shoe – Marant sticks to her Parisian roots, with added equestrian flair

Initial reaction:

While last season’s Isabel Marant girl was a jet-setting traveller, the French designer kept things a little closer to home for AW15 – even offering her take on the iconic Breton stripe.

Retro sports and riding boots:

Despite the frills and dainty lace-up folk-style blouses, this wasn’t a simple girlishness. Knitwear came in the form of zip up rollneck jumpers with retro sports stripes marking a chevron across the chest. Full skirted dresses were toughened up by the addition of thick leather belts, while embroidered high waisted trousers and thigh-high riding boots gave the collection a subtly equestrienne kick.

The new it-shoe:

Marant is famous for her much-coveted (and much copied) wedge heel trainers, but this season the designer offered a new icon – black military ankle boots complete with silver buckles and studs.
