this is just beautiful... absolutely great alternative for daily clothes - for work, for party, for spending time with kids... very chic, wearable, with a touch of luxury.... I love it... and think my best girlfriend would wear 90 percent of this collection immediately

not very impressed.. there are some nice pieces and i do think she does fur incredibly well.. i would love an isabel marant fur coat!
but i agree on the styling...emmanuelle forces her own personal look down over all the collections she styles, and although i actually like emmanuelle's style it just seems kind of lazy and it become so repetitive and boring... but i guess that's what they pay her to do?!

Thanks for the info, I'm checking it now
Btw, I meant I can't, sorry for my typing mistake.

I don't think you can even compare Balmain to this...Balmain didn't invent shoulder pads...mini dresses are nothing new!...their are no blatent references to Balmain...

i agree, nothing to do with balmain at all... isabel is more simple, neutral and natural. I adore the simple combinations she makes, it seems so obvious.

I think it's a bit boring actually.

Lemeray thanks! I'm crazy about this whole collection - the clothes, the styling and the coolest models all capture the IM feeling perfectly. Cool but simple chic, never overdone.

I think the comparison to Balmain comes from the fact both collections are styled by E.Alt (Alt being consultant for Balmain ... not sure she does consult for Marant, though ... but her touch is strongly present) so you can compare these two collections as they were 'prepared' by the same orchestra maestro ...

indeed shoulder pads are not Balmain roots (though I cannot historically confirm) ... but they are def. NOT Isabel Marant ... I've known her work since the late 1990s (and probably since her 1st collection) and I can tell you that eventhough we smell Marant somewhere in this ... it screams Alt sweating some Balmain ...
and I hate that ...

even the casting has changed ... she used to make catwalked Roman Boringer or Mélanie Thierry or atypic models ... I'm sure this is the same casting than in Balmain ...




* ok ok ... i'm officially in fight with Alt-ism ... *

Thanks for posting the pics lemary. I really like this collection.

Does anybody know if she uses real or fake fur? I can't tell from the pics.
