Isabel Marant is well-known for her casual and fashionable designs. The eponymous French Fashion House brought back leggings on the runway for its Pre-Fall 2017 Show. For a very long time, leggings were allowed only at the gym. But the French designer decided that it’s time for leggings to make a huge comeback. For those who are old enough to remember, the trend in the 90s was to wear oversized blouses and leggings on a regular basis. Isabel Marant wanted to remind us how comfortable and stylish leggings look paired not only with oversized blouses but with skirts and dresses too.
The designer always tries to bring what locals would wear and this time she noticed that more people are taking pride in their fitness clothes. Apparently, Parisians started to transform their second skin pants into everyday fashion moments. That’s how ruched active tights became the key point in her Pre- Fall 2017 Collection. The second-skin pants look surprisingly good paired with skirts and dresses.
As incredible as it may seem, Marant’s collection isn’t just a contrast between sports and elegant pieces roughly combined to get the attention of the crowd. The designer virtuously combined tight pants with wearable pieces of clothing and created a divine mixture of polished and relaxed. If you don’t feel like wearing such a tight piece of clothing, the Isabel Marant Pre-Fall 2017 Collection offers a variety of relaxed fit trousers. The entire collection offers smart choices for business women who want to escape the monotony of the classic pants and shirt office outfit. In order to refresh office style, Isabel Marant mixed prints and second skin shiny pants with masculine suits to satisfy the style cravings of the most daring women.
Blazers and coats are predominantly belted and oversized. The oversized vest with leather shoulder details is probably something that barely any woman has in her wardrobe. It’s really impressive how Isabel Marant manages to design outfits that will stand out and that are very wearable at the same time.
For women who prefer less color, Isabel created all black and gray outfits as well as simple one color dresses and paired them with leggings and strappy flat sandals. If you expected sneakers with leggings, Isabel Marant probably surprised you. Almost every outfit of her collection features strappy flat sandals or heels.
