Leave it to Isabel Marant to take some of our favorite, non-designer staples, like oversized sweaters, cargo pants, cutoffs, and sneakers, and turn them into high fashion. For her spring '13 collection, Isabel took our go-to vacation wardrobe (you know, sandals, shorts, and strapless dresses) and gave it a luxe spin.
While some of the wares might seem like they were borne out of the same inspiration as Abercrombie + Fitch (albeit executed way, way better), the collection was a solidly wearable and covetable presentation of Isabel's aesthetic.
Short, minidresses (to better show off your tan), bejeweled sandals (to better fit in at the poolside bar), high-water trousers (to better stay dry while walking along the beach)…. Is that the ocean we hear crashing or have we been in the office for way too long? Click through to see the best.
