Spotlight: Maria

I’m always excited to hear from fellow philes who follow tMP, and when Maria contacted me with
these stunning photos of her in Isabel Marant, I thought why not do a Q&A with one of our
followers! So meet Maria Brito, Interior Designer, Decorator, & Consultant for her own company, Lifestyling® by Maria Gabriela Brito in New York City.

When did you first discover Isabel Marant?
In a trip I did to Paris in 1999. It was very
ethnic and bohemian back then. I would
also say simpler, but nothing like the past
4 years – it has gotten so much better. 

What makes you gravitate towards wearing
her clothing/accessories?
The fact that everything fits wonderfully
well, that the craftsmanship of each piece
is awesome and that the style is unique.
Isabel Marant is magical and at the same
time so easy to wear. Almost everything
can be dressed up with a few accessories
and key pieces like a blazer or high heels,
or paired down with jeans or shorts.

How would you define your style?
Fun, Colorful, Chic.

What is your favorite Isabel Marant piece
that you own?
Tall fringed boots in burgundy.

What are your must haves from her upcoming Fall 2012 Collection? 
Those gorgeous studded boots!

First – Isabel Marant AW11 Mana dress, Navajo skirt, & Poppy heels 
Second – Isabel Marant SS12 Agora poncho & Kals leather leggings, AW10 heels
