I'm not sure, I adored Isabel Marant in the mid 00s but if you look at her late 90s collection, it has nothing to do with her label 3 years later, or 6 years later and now, she did pretty much let trends transform the brand completely. In a way I think that was exactly her charm, that she was able to produce trendy pieces and give them a 'soul', there was never any vulgarity or exhausted themes, or the statement of uniform, she provided well-made, ready-to-wear alternatives that could last longer than the inspiration for them and that still promoted some individuality and spoke for her abilities as a designer.. sort of what Vanessa Bruno succeeds at these days, except the Marant girl was much cooler and unique for me.

It's weird seeing how all of that has vanished, not only it's all (client included) overridden by trends but it's also the most passé approach to trends, and then the worst of trends.

Well, whether she let trends take over her brand or not, at least the clothes weren't ugly.

I have to agree Deango, Fall 2011 was the last good collection for me. Guess I'll just keep finding pieces from past collections to buy. I don't know, something about this just feels too light, and not in a good way. There's not much variety. Her fall collections are always the best though, so maybe it will be better in six months.

It's like Stradivarius meets Hawaii gift shop.
