Isabel Marant has nailed it. The "it" referring to the exact kind of presence we like to have when in a room. The Marant woman here may not have precisely smooth hair, and she likes to wear her sweatshirts baggy and her pants loose and cuffed, but make no mistake, she demands serious attention. In the resort '14 lookbook, it appears as though an entire production is whirling around the model, yet she practically can't help but pull the spotlight right to her, as she wears designs that slouch, flip, and are tailored in all the right places.
Some Marant favorites return in the resort lineup, including flirty miniskirts and quilted, cropped jackets, plus we love the French designer's mix of both super-feminine (slinky, one-shouldered ruffled dresses) and borrowed from the boys (tuxedo blazers and oxfords). Plus, be on the lookout for a pair of copper-foil pants that are so good, they're practically making us giddy.
Sure, Isabel Marant may be known for being effortless and cool, but this new resort collection has taken things to a new, amazing-without-trying-too-hard level.
