Summer is starting to wind down– the days are cooler and a bit shorter. The giant September issues will be stuffed into mailboxes soon, a true heralding of the impending fall season. I asked Kristina O’Neill, editor-in-chief of the WSJ. magazine, the date her big fashion issue is slated to drop (August 24th). Kristina offered KiC a sneak peek and sent this image of my favorite designer, Isabel Marant.
In the accompanying article, writer William van Meter chats with the designer about the flourishing Isabel Marant empire, her focus on her work rather than her fame, and the mass copying of her popular sneakers. Although I’ve been a hard-core Isabel Marant fan since 2010, many fashion insiders have been devotees of the French designer’s clothes for nearly 20 years.
And here’s why. Marant’s effortlessly chic aesthetic is imbued with her bohemian spirit. The seemingly laid-back, yet hard working cool-girl, Marant tells the WSJ. that she’s inspired by “how women in the street wear things”. This inspiration is perhaps in part the basis for her wildly desirable designs.
