I didn’t think I’d carry a lush shopper until Isabel Marant created the opportunity. Sizable and flexible, the tote, nevertheless, instantly became a recent favorite. Where do I begin? The cool-toned green leather is soft and manipulated for an aged appearance. The double handles in matching leather and striped sporty cotton come in handy for both by-hand and over-the-shoulder carries. The cotton linig in tonal floral print makes an occasional peek-a-boo irresistibly cool. It’s the kind of style that delivers more character in person than on display.
The sweatshirt from the same designer is, by the same token, alive – the fuzz-covered front logo and the weighty hand of the fabric came into life in contact. Subtle details make or break a design. In that sense, Isabel Marant is communal – you gotta try them for yourself.
