Behind the Scenes

By now, it’s pretty apparent that I love featuring anything that happens backstage at Isabel’s shows.
I’m just more interested in seeing the “reality” of what it takes to put these shows together. I also
love seeing the models smile and be more relaxed, which can actually change how I feel about the
clothing versus the intense or somber stares they project on the runway. But really, any excuse
to feature Liu Wen on the blog is fine with me, she’s one of my favorite models!

“You will not believe me, but I was inspired by those miserable days and nights in winter when you don’t want to go outside…I just thought about, if you have to go outside, how are you going to 
do it so you look good but keep warm. No matter where you are—a party, a friend’s house,
or back outside where it’s cold—I wanted it to be easy to adjust from that cold, awful weather
to being inside and looking great the whole time.” – Isabel Marant

I posted this photo a couple days ago on Facebook to make sense of why Jessica Biel was randomly walking around Paris in head to toe IM a few months ago. Ahh, photo shoot. I just found this great behind the scenes video from Elle that has most of the designers, including Isabel, talking about
the shoot. It is long so if you find yourself just wanting to see Isabel Marant, skip to 3:15;
however, listening to all the designers is not boring in the least, especially Olivier (LOVE HIM!).

This video by L’Oréal is actually a bit long to just watch models getting ready for a show, but I still
found it interesting to see how much work went into making all the models look natural for Isabel’s SS13 show. Can you even imagine what it feels like to go through this process all day long for
shows that last maybe five minutes? You’d have to tap into some major mental stamina…

All these backstage photos surfacing online are stunning, right? I cropped them so they wouldn’t
look so small on tMP, but check out Self Service’s original photos here. The composition
of these shots adds exponential impact to the focus on Isabel’s prints. 
I can’t get enough…but seriously, if you’re tired of seeing SS13 backstage let me know!!!
