Sometimes opposites just work together perfectly. Like Monica and Chandler. Or, chocolate and popcorn. And, it's not that we're comparing Isabel Marant's fall '14 collection to a mash-up movie theater snack, but it's definitely got dissimilar elements that somehow fit together in genius harmony.
The runway show offered up an assortment of cold-weather separates that give off just as much Parisian edge as they do Western charm. Blue-and-white wave-print knits reminded us of saddle blankets (in a good way), while belted, shearling vests are the stuff of PFW street-style dreams. Sequin skirts made floor-dusting sweaters more elegant. And, the black-and-navy heavy collection was made a little more delicate with thin-but-tough silver mesh necklaces draped in triangles, almost like bandanas.
Also of note? The built-in peplum jackets in green and crocodile metallic, the high-waisted trouser pants, and the exaggerated shoulders of a textured gray blazer. No, you may not find those home on the range (or on the streets of PFW — yet), but that doesn't mean they won't be there come fall '14.
