Isabel Marant on Her A/W 2016 CollectionLeave a Comment
What is your focus for the Fall/Winter collection? What is your inspiration?
– The inspiration comes from youth, when I was 15 and snuck out to go to clubs. With all the bad things that has been happening in Paris, I wanted to forget about all the bad and instead thinking of simpler periods, when the city was much more innocent. It reminds me of living life as it is, playing around, going to flea-markets, buying Victorian blouses and men’s clothes. Going to London. The 80s were a good moment with lots of different clothes, workability, new 80s and the beginning of hip hop. I really like that time in Paris, it feels so much more alive. Everybody was much more open, playful and joyful. I wanted to show that in spirit.
Which 3 key items, according to you, are must-haves in women’s wardrobes for Fall – It is difficult for me; you ask me to choose between my children… But to name a few, I like the shoes (red. the ones she’s wearing in the clip) and the trousers. For me, it is about making a collection with many wearable styles. I’m very happy for this collection – it is so close to what I had in mind, love the joyfulness in it!
How does this collection fit into the Scandinavian aesthetic?
– I think the collection fits perfectly into the Scandinavian aesthetics. Scandinavians are very down to earth and they are always wearing very uncomplicated clothes. The collection works very well into a Scandinavian wardrobe.
