Isabel Marant RTW Spring 2015

For spring, Marant joined the artisanal movement marked by rough, raw textures and fringed finishes, which has gained traction this season.

Always with her finger in the air, Isabel Marant sees where trends are ablowin’ and gets there not a minute too late. For spring, she joined the artisanal movement marked by rough, raw textures and fringed finishes, which has gained traction this season — perhaps in protest of our culture’s current tech obsession.


“I wanted to do something tribal,” Marant said backstage. “I’m always inspired by tribes in Africa, but I didn’t want it to be too literal.”


As the patron saint of boho music-fest attire, Marant might be expected to take tribal in a handkerchief-hem-and-turquoise-jewelry direction. Instead, she threw a curveball, keeping it clean and refreshingly modern, for a look that dates back to Biblical times: spare tunics with fringed trims, a wrap vest with a rope belt and Greco-Roman draped dresses accessorized with a proliferation of Jesus sandals. Marant’s girl is a bit of a Jezebel, so all silhouettes were cut sinfully short.


The palette was graphic — mostly black and white with a few interludes of earthy red. There was a nice precision to the cut of miniskirts in neat raffia fringe and tiers of knife-pleated leather. Where there was decoration, it was spare, with Marant trimming a pair of cool low-rise pants with puka shells.
