Confident craft

Isabel Marant is encouraging us to go with the flow

“She could be on her way out of the office, leaving the club or freshly back from the beach. Is it 4 in the morning or 4 in the afternoon?” The Isabel Marant woman warps time through her spontaneity and effortless sensibility. It’s a superpower far more useful than the MCU could ever promise and what’s more, Isabel Marant is making it available for us all. Simply slip on one of her chiffon silk tops adorned with shimmering metallic embroideries and pair it with some baggy cargo pants (a la 90s MTV), or a leather mini skirt and laser-cut suede jacket combo – switch out the mini for moto pants when temperatures drop.

Corine Day photographs line the walls of the Isabel Marant SS23 woman’s house, those iconic 90s shots of Kate Moss before she was Kate Moss, and the guys follow suit: in loose silhouettes that hang off the body; loosely woven tops, cropped leather trousers, chest-baring suede jackets, boilersuits and sandles. Here is the work of a designer confident in her craft and timeless in execution.
