It seems Kate Moss never EVER steps out without her Isabel Marant coat. To be fair, it looks so snuggily, we aren’t in the least bit surprised. Originally shown on the Spring / Summer 2010 runway with shorts and oh-so-Mossy boho boots, Kate has now had a good two years (that’s FOUR seasons in fashion years!) wear out of her multi-coloured fluffy number.
Her favourite combination for day-time casual wear is to pair her Marant number with black skinny jeans and boots, but we’ve seen her throw it on over short shorts + tights too for a night on the town with hubby Jamie Hince. As a supermodel-turned-fashion-designer who has THE.BEST. access to clothes over the entire whole world, we're rather impressed with Miss Moss’s recessionista re-wearing. Kate Moss, we salute you.
We’ve spotted other celebs in the gilet version too; this style has one seriously loyal fan base. Kate's fellow model Alessandra Ambrosio wears hers with skinny jeans and tan leather knee high boots, while queen of the pout Rosie Huntington-Whiteley styles hers with a plain white tee and blue jeans.
If, for some inexcusable reason, you missed it in store at the time, or perhaps Marant is slightly off budget, or maybe you weren’t convinced that the furry jacket trend would stick around for quite so long, fear not! We’ve put together a selection of rather gorgeous alternatives — so take your pick!
