Truly dig these first pictures of the Étoile Isabel Marant collection for fall 2013-14. I like the fact that Isabel Marant has gone back to her “roots” – creating pieces that are timeless and wardrobe staples, but of course with a great cut. I had a hard time to relate to the current collection (the Étoile S/S13 collection) with all the flower tunics and pants, owl-printed pullovers, pale colors (like yellow and baby blue) and star-printed jeans… That is why I totally embrace what I have seen this far. Super like on the peacoat, the thigh-high suede boots, the knit and the slight flared jeans with a simple, crisp white shirt. The ad campaign is featuring gorgeous Andreea Diaconu and is photographed by Karim Sadli.
Isabel Marant opened a brand new boutique in Paris a couple of days ago, on Avenue Victor Hugo. You will not only find the brand’s Ready to Wear collection in the store but also her accessory line with shoes and bags. The boutique is over 2,000 square feet in the heart of a Parisian three story mansion. Of course there were a lot of chic people mingling in the evening the doors to the boutique opened. Among others Doria Tillier (looking great in a star printed shirt), Marie-Ange Casta (second pic) and Jeanne Damas (looking chic in a Isabel Marant top and jacket.
