Isabel Marant is one of the most in-demand fashion lines in the world – and that is a fact. Having already given us statements like hidden-wedge sneakers or baroque wallpaper resembled bombers, she’s now reaching out to a wider crowd with her collaboration together with H&M. With words like very French, androgynous and bohemian I could best describe Marant’s world – you do feel her passion in her designs, while at the same time you do feel her modesty too. This makes the whole image around the brand very honest, yet very natural and apparently above all, hers. Set to hit stores on the 14th of November, the eagerly anticipated capsule collection by Isabel Marant for H&M sees the French designer unveil her debut menswear alongside women’s and kid’s – bringing together her Parisian chic versus laid-back references available for the public. Excitingly for male fans of the brand, Marant has also created her very first full men’s collection as part of the collaboration, featuring heavy knits, biker-inspired leather pants, embroidered jeans and outerwear by balancing a fine line between the male and female collection. Save the date, 14TH OF NOVEMBER!
Isabel Marant ist eine der gefragtesten Modelinien der Welt – und das ist ein Fakt. Sie hat uns schon früher mit Statements versorgt, wie den Sneakern mit versteckten Wedges oder den Bomberjacken mit Mustern, die uns an barocke Tapeten erinnern. (more…)

I have read an interesting article on Vogue the other day concerning the shoes issue, which discusses the topic of ‘women are wearing shoes that also have to please men.’ To be frank, with my 174 cm height, I never really bothered wearing high-heels unless the occasion literally demanded to do so. However, just as with many other things in life, with age, your perception in this matter changes as well. The article, which you can read here featured designer Christian Louboutin’s thoughts on whether women buy their shoes with men in mind. If we take the approach that states that women are obsessed with shoes and men are obsessed with female legs the straightforward result shows that men do care what women are wearing on their feet. As tempting as it can be to stockpile your shoe closet with feathery, sparkling, sky-high heels, which you know you will not wear more than once already in the moment you are buying them, I would suggest to pile on a nice pair of light and dark suede pumps, a crazy platform one, wooden wedges for the summer, ballerinas and sandals in the colours you love, a nice pair of lets say Isabel Marant boots that work well in the upcoming festival season too, a pair of converse or vans (choose the leopard one). Depending on your style and lifestyle, if you fall for heels, don’t forget to get a pair in gold and get a pair in silver and with men on mind choose your best match every time you can afford the amazing treat of buying a pair of new beauties.
Ich habe neulich einen interessanten Artikel auf Vogue gelesen, bei dem es um das Thema Schuhen ging und diskutiert wurde ‘sollen Frauen Schuhe tragen, die auch den Männern gefallen’. (more…)
And another beautiful collaboration is to be made with the French designer, Isabel Marant, which I’ve been really hoping for deep inside ever since H&M did its first collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld and afterwards with Stella McCartney back in 2005. What I love about Marant is that her designs carry the real aesthetics of a Parisian woman with all of her effortless coolness, chick edge and style, while suggesting this great easiness in attitude. Marant said to Elle earlier today: ‘Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality’ – and I guess it explains a lot. Her signature style is all about glamour with a rock’n’roll edge, elegant yet androgynous, and this makes her designs very unique and contemporary, not to mention the genius way as she incorporates ethic details that people actually crave to wear in the 21st century. The collection will launch into store in 250 stores worldwide and online on the 14th of November. We’ll see you in the queue!
Und eine weitere wunderbare Kooperation wird mit der französischen DesignerinIsabel Marant stattfinden, auf die ich schon tief in mir seit der ersten Zusammenarbeit von H&M mit Karl Lagerfeld und danach mit Stella McCartney im Jahr 2005 gewartet habe. (more…)
