Isabel Marant has cultivated a cult following for her carefree bohemian aesthetic. This season Marant’s Mainline collection was inspired by the 70s, mixing textured knits and tweeds, shiny glam-rock silks, ruching and ruffles in pieces throughout the collection that fuse the decade's disco diva and bohemian chic vibes. Marant’s Pre-Spring 2014 features many great transitional pieces, which are perfect for everyone and any occasion. To channel Marant’s signature bohemian style, look no further than the anthracite-coloured Gilson dress and Glens skirt. These beautiful slim-fitting knitted pieces, feature raw edges and fringed trims, embodying the Parisian label’s carefree spirit. Another great knitted piece is the oversized anthracite Goa jumper, adorned with metallic thread detailing, it is the perfect transeasonal knit, which can be easily paired with other Isabel Marant mainline and Etoile pieces. Another standout from Isabel Marant’s Pre-Spring 2014 collection is the black and raspberry-hued silks, which are a prominent feature of the collection’s lookbook. These pieces strike the perfect balance between laidback and sophisticated. The Yann dress is crafted from luxurious moiré, and features ruching details at one shoulder and on the skirt, to flatter the silhouette. This piece is ideal for corporate to cocktail dressing. Similarly to the Yann dress, the Yoni top is ruched at one shoulder and along the hem to create a flattering finish. The Yoni top is a great piece as it can be paired back easily with many other separates from the Mainline and Etoile collections. The Yella trousers are another fail-safe separate from Marant this season. These trousers are ideal for both day and evening dressing, and can be paired with anything from a classic Isabel Marant T-shirt to an Isabel Marant silk top and heels for a more polished look. An Isabel Marant mainline collection would be incomplete without effortless tailoring. This season sees the arrival of the double-breasted Nadela jacket – an masculine style blazer crafted from lightweight wool, making it the perfect addition to any wardrobe as it can be paired with almost anything. For the complete look, the simple and sleek Nate trousers and a pair of Isabel Marant heels are the perfect accompaniment.
Pre-Collection 2014 has been one of the most exciting seasons yet in terms of Isabel Marant footwear! This season also sees the arrival of an abundance of must-have sandals, heels and flats, all of which can be easily paired with every piece from the Isabel Marant Etoile and Mainline collections. The Plumy pointed-toe flats are a transitional must-have for any wardrobe; these are available in white python-effect leather, beige python-effect leather and black canvas. The Plumy flats are destined to be a staple in the closets of well-respected Fashion Editors including Emmanuelle Alt and Anna Wintour. The Paw stiletto sandal heel is a major standout this season, having already been spotted on the stylish feet of Sienna Miller and Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller. Available in cognac and black, these divine leather sandals feature a caged, multiple criss-cross strap, which can be easily paired with anything from jeans to dresses. The Play heel is another favourite this season and has already been coveted by Kate Moss and Swedish fashion blogger Elin Kling. Play is a simple black open sandal heel, which is elegantly accented with a tonal satin bow. For those who prefer closed-toe shoes, the pointed-toe Pea pump (available in ageless black canvas or beautiful beige python-effect leather), the pointed stiletto Prissy pump (available in beautiful beige) and the Poppy pump (a favourite of Victoria Beckham), a black canvas pointed-toe pump which is adorned with a tonal satin bow, are three equally stylish and timeless options.
