Isabel Marant Fall 2016 RTW Channels ’80s Clubbing Style

Perhaps the first thing we notice about the Isabel Marant fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection presented with such gusto on the Paris Fashion Week runway, is the red hues that take over from the opening outfit onwards. Reds appear throughout the line-up of 43 different ensembles, appearing striped on drawstring waist skirts, jumpsuits with bows on one shoulder and a cutout on the other, sleeves appearing instead. Red appears as part of prints used for coat lining, on mini dresses with black undertones, on socks that are bunched up around the ankles, on high necks and interesting designs, plaid checks and sweaters, belts and detailing, and of course on cropped pants and lovely skirts that include zips and wraparound features. The red appears all throughout on enough pieces to be able to call it a trend and more.

The Isabel Marant philosophy about life has generally always been to feel one’s best while enjoying life to the fullest. She keeps away from everything dour and her runway is meant to please with lots of colors and creative designs. Paris needs some fun of late anyhow, which is something that Marant is bringing in with large doses, making us feel really good about our fashion choices.

Nice and happy is what the mood is set at, while the collection is effectively the steady mix of rockabilly, punk and New Wave style, all of which attest to making the Parisian air and environment less heavy on our shoulders. As such, the decade of true fun is brought in, accenting the 1980s rather happily. The olden elements brought into the modern day actually seem to be working quite well for the designer herself as we see everything from the Flock of Seagulls hair moments to the candy apple red patent leather that appears so many times throughout. As for ruched and poufed party dresses? Who does not miss those?

Some of the loveliest pieces seen include oversize mannish coats, which also appear as a double-breasted gray plaid coat, while a multicolored chunky tweed takes center attention. A burgundy, blue and gray plaid coat with slit sides also generates quite a bit of interest, looking really lovely. The pieces otherwise include distressed preppy argyle sweaters, marled cable knits, skinny cropped pants, strappy pointy-toe flats, frilly blouses, and so much more.

We can see lovely animal prints from time to time, while the rocker nostalgia was apparent throughout. The pieces are quite wearable, anyone can see that, and they are truly fun, which makes for a line that is fit for the ladies with a flair for adventure and a preference for things that do not look so high class. The French house founded in 1994 has truly grown well over the years and made a name for itself in the realm of jerseys, knitwear, and shoes, though the last was rather unoriginal this time around. Isabel Marant’s fashions are definitely great to shop from!
