On Thursday, Isabel Marant unveiled her Winter 2018 collection with a genre that is not typically expected from the French house. Marant introduced Parisians to the American Western vibes at the Tuileries Garden, with cowboy-inspired attire for the modern sophisticated woman.
Different from most American brands, Marant incorporated sleek leather pieces and camel tones into her feminine ankle boots and flirty dresses. The collection featured lightweight button ups in paisley patterns and trendy ruffled skirts paired with thigh high boots. Marant channeled her inner Jim Jarmusch dexterity, designing blanket coats with Pendleton patterns and coats with fringe details and leather lapels. The line also consisted of a cozy poncho, cleverly tucked into sleek black shorts paired with modern ankle boots.
Marant didn’t step away from her French roots as the designer styled a grey blazer as a short dress with a white buckled belt and pearl buttons on certain pieces. Geometric designs made their debut on knit sweaters and striped dresses. Among the Southwestern clothing, stood out feminine pieces styled effortlessly. A leather camel colored midi skirt made its way down the runway, with frill details from a ruffle trend that seems like isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The show closed with a spectacular portion of cocktail dresses. Using poplin and frills, the dresses had metallic tones that dazzled across the catwalk. Sequins were debuted on all-black ensembles, including a flattering long sleeve dress with a one shouldered puffer detail. Though different from her chic routine, Marant proved her ability in turning any reference into an upscale design.
