Isabel Marant Fall 2014–French designer Isabel Marant brought a new approach to her eponymous label’s fall-winter 2014 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week. The formerly bohemian girl was given a somewhat mannish makeover with an outing of oversized and slouchy trousers, jackets with bulky exaggerated shoulders and grungy plaid prints. Despite the tomboyish appeal, the Marant woman kept a feminine touch in the form of sequin-embellished sweaters and skirts, unexpected ruffles and leather mini skirts. Boots are the shoe of choice–whether as a furry snow boot or a heeled ankle boot.
Isabel Marant Etoile Spring 2014 – Leading model Karmen Pedaru stars in the spring-summer 2014 lookbook from Etoile, the diffusion line from Isabel Marant. Scott Trindle photographs the Estonian stunner wearing comfy knits, relaxed denim and Marant’s signature rustic prints. Karmen looks perfectly relaxed in the images shot by Scott Trindle with sandals on her feet, and an ever chic loose braid.
All-Star Collaboration – For it’s last collaboration with Isabel Marant, fast fashion retailer H&M pulls out the big guns and taps some of the industry’s top names to star in the campaign images. Beauties Alek Wek, Daria Werbowy, Devon Aoki, Malgosia Bela, Milla Jovovich, Sam Rollinson and Saskia de Brauw all star in a stylish series of studio images photographed by Karim Sadli.

Marant’s Spring Essentials – Isabel Marant delivered her signature rocker cool, bohemian aesthetic for her namesake label’s spring 2014 collection shown during the fourth day of Paris Fashion Week. Fresh off the heels of her recent H&M collaboration, the French designer revisits some of her greatest staples such as boxy jackets, skin-baring hemlines, distressed denim and clinging dresses. With the easiness and cool vibe which almost envelopes the Marant woman, you can see why the Swedish retailer would tap the designer for a collaboration; her aesthetic is contemporary and speaks to the young woman of today whether in Paris or Los Angeles.
