For the Isabel Marant SS15 collection Marant has taken the concept of tribal and given it an urban twist. Her influences have come from every continent but still form a cohesive collection. From Hawaii, there’s a hula skirt style black raffia skirt; from aboriginal Australia, a dark rusty red dot art print; and from Africa, an accordion-pleat leather miniskirt. There’s also a new take on the leather gladiator sandal which I’m sure will sell out quickly.
There are a few things I have come to expect from an Isabel Marant Spring/Summer collection; a killer sandal, an amazing print (that even I, who rarely wears print want to wear), sexy mini skirts, a new take on the belt, a slouchy knit and a wraparound jacket. Marant has recognised that this formula works for her and the women that buy her clothes. I, for one, think it’s a savvy move on her part.
