We have been struck by a serious case of Isabel Marant fever here at Grazia Daily. Today we got a sneak peek at the designer’s collection for H&M, before the launch on the 14 November, and boy oh boy is it good. Only 20 days to go!
Yes by now we’ve all seen the achingly cool campaign pictures with supermodel Daria Werbowy, Saskia de Brauw, Lou Doillon and Milla Jovovich and Isabel wearing a print-tastic dress on Instagram. But up close it’s even better than we had hoped. The collection stays true to the Marant DNA, with Navajo print jeans, fringed booties and serious knits. But it comes with a high street friendly price tag, so get ready to queue peeps.
The hype is now picking up as last night the designer threw a 90s themed street party in Paris, where Audrey Tautou, January Jones, Freida Pinto and Alice Dellal (all head to toe in Isabel Marant, natch) danced around a giant disco ball. The Marant models gave us serious style envy - we've never seen quite so much fringing or navajo prints in one place.
Here at Grazia towers we have been busy compiling our shopping lists. Katherine Ormerod, Senior Fashion News & Features Editor, is after the mini pom pom jacket (£199.99), the metallic dress (£69.99), and the belted tux style blazer (£79.99), while Lily Russo, Shopping Editor, wants the black fringe boots because she points out they look like signature Isabel. Hannah Almassi, Fashion Editor, has her eye on the floral longer-length chiffon dress as she says it's 'super flattering with that all carefully placed ruching, and is great for layering up with a knit and boots come wintertime.'
See you in the queue? Write it on your hand, scribble it on your diaries, punch it into your iPhone - 14th November is Isabel Marant day. Until then take a closer look at the collection in the gallery above...
