Isabel Marant for Essentials

It’s not that I am disappointed by the Isabel Marant show per se– I just need to wrap my head around the fact that the collection was not about the cool-girl pieces I have come to expect, but rather, essentials.

I am a self confessed IM nut. Her clothes, and overall style, have transformed the way I dress, especially for day. Each season I add a few items from her line to my wardrobe and they are invariably the coolest things I own. I will, however, buy a few staples from this comfortable and effortless FW13 show.

The shearling above is now the coat on my fall wish list and the winter whites below are lovely and wearable. There are a lot of knit leggings that look comfy too.

  • I love IM too – curious what you bought from the Spring collection?

  • Actually, nothing yet. I am waiting on a little white dress and hope it is not too short. I bought a lot last spring and this past fall, but not falling hard for anything I have seen yet. tbc

  • Preston – what do you like most to pair with your knit leggings? I love leggings and am always looking for inspiration. Thanks

  • Admittedly, eastern CT isn’t cutting edge. These are plenty “cool girl” to me.
