ISABEL MARANT SS23 SHOW
Back to the roots. The Isabel Marant silhouette and codes, imbued with the spirit of the house’s inception in the 90’s,resurface through remastered styles; reissued wardrobe staples manifesting the brand’s timelessness and its ability to constantly reinvent itself. Fragility meets toughness as fabrics and volumes come together. Mixing leather with silk and crochet with skin, the Isabel Marant girl seems to be coming straight out of a Corinne Day editorial. Chiffon silk tops are covered in shimmering metallic embroideries while slip dresses flirt with baggy cargo pants.
Low-rise bottoms, open necklines and a faded camo print remind of the Y2K era. The attitude is urban and versatile. She could be on her way out of the office, leaving the club or freshly back from the beach. Is it 4 in the morning or 4 in the afternoon? Her effortless nature and the refinement of her looks is captivating. A sense of extreme lightness radiates from the collection. The color and pattern palette blends together earthy tones and floral prints coming from the other side of the world. Emphasis is on flou styles with feminine and precious details: golden beads, delicate ruffles and thin straps. She walks down the runway with the confidence to be feminine
