Since launching her line in 1994, French designer Isabel Marant has developed a cult following that includes French It Girls and worldwide members of the cool crowd. For her Spring 2010 collection, Marant wowed her fans once more, creating a breezy, eclectic collection that was part world traveler, part bohemian-luxe.
Printed skirts, with hints of metallic, were paired with sharp-shouldered tweed jackets, embellished at the neckline. Cuffed, slouchy boots were adorned with fringe and chain detail. Low-slung belts were worn over patterned minidresses. Pants were draped tightly and paired with wrap-around sandals. The collection was colorful and sexy.
As with most of our favorite runway collections, the brilliance comes at a price. Our monthly edition of Runway To Reality is designed to combat those designer blues, bringing to you a selection of buys that will help you create a runway-inspired outfit at a budget-friendly price. If you love Isabel Marant’s Parisian chic but can’t afford the prices, this story is for you.
