Isabel Marant A/W 2018

Isabel Marant A/W 2018

Moodboard: there was a rollicking sense of rodeo on Marant’s A/W 2018 catwalk, as the designer presented a men’s and women’s collection chock-a-block with fringing, leather, Navajo prints and shearling. These are dressing codes essential to the chic Parisenne – a wardrobe that Marant has been integral in cultivating, and for A/W 2018 she amped up the Western flair, with models strutting to a soundtrack of Dolly Parton and country and western riffs, mixing rodeo style with glamorous ruched party dressing, revealing swathes of leg and a flash of thigh.

Best in show: There were chic striped blanket capes, skinny snakeskin trousers, pretty smock dresses and shearling coats with patterns the shape of graphic windmills or origami stars.

Finishing touches: From Paco Rabanne to Chloé, Parisian brands have been making a case for the cowboy boot, and Marant offered slouchy thigh-high styles, paired with fringed clutches, studded belts and bejewelled hoop earrings.
