Looking back at Isabel’s past shows, I found some favorites from her Fall 2007 collection. The
color palette is exactly how I envision fall weather, and her pieces, of course, are as luxurious as
they are casual. I think my 2007 self would’ve worn the wool jacket, top, and skirt combo ALL
the time.

When I saw the Rio sandals on the runway, my first thought was “perfect and PAINFUL.” My pain threshold for strappy heels is pretty low, but my desire to wear them is exceptionally high. So here
is the truce, the Reawhich offers a shorter heel than the Rio. No more wincing at the thought of wearing them, just intense admiration for those ankle straps!

“J’essaie de faire quelque chose de singulier. Le fait d’être indépendant, de ne pas faire partie d’un énorme groupe, cela permet de ne pas avoir de compte à rendre. A quiconque…Dans un monde
super uniformisé, mondialisé, le fait d’etre indépendant permet de faire de vrais choix de stratégies.
Ce qui m’interesse dans le vetement, c’est que l’on sent qu’il y a quelqu’un derrière. Pour cela, il
faut garder le controle.” – Isabel Marant

“I try to do something special. Being independent, not to be part of a huge group, it helps to
have no accountability. To anyone…In a world super standardized, globalized, the fact of being
independent allows you to make real choices of strategies. What interests me in the clothes is
that one feels that there is someone behind. For this, we must maintain control.” – Isabel Marant

A couple days ago, the address of Isabel’s Los Angeles store was announced, and I’m SO excited
for her second U.S. store to take up residency. Unbelievably, Isabel is opening 5 more boutiques +
L.A. by the end of summer, and she’s even moving her headquarters THIS month to another
location in Paris. I can only wish her luck and not too much stress…

Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo: Unknown
Los Angeles: 8454 Melrose Place (West Hollywood)
Paris: l’avenue Victor Hugo (4th boutique, 16th arrondissement) 
Paris: 50, rue Croix des Petits Champs (Headquarters, 1st arrondissement)

Isabel’s Keni leather jacket from Spring 2011 could almost fly under the radar. Not in a bad way though, but more like it’s understated in its coolness. The cropped length, contrasting hardware,
and wash of the leather make it so wearable for everyday. My favorite part though is the structured shoulder, which in my opinion really elevates the overall style.
