PARIS…Isabel Marant is a go-to favorite of many young Parisian women, a staple in their wardrobes for a touch of versatile insouciance. For F/W 08, Marant delivered a whole range of these items, from cropped jackets and parkas, to cozy, relaxed pants and slouchy boots. Large country plaids were an unexpected touch, but one that is certainly on-trend and worked for this casual collection. Referencing workwear more than high fashion, these patterns are perfect for a relaxed daytime uniform. Don’t miss this French designer for a wealth of key item inspiration.
