Cowgirls in the 1800’s were the inspiration for the amazing ‘urban cowgirls meets rock ‘n roll’ blend that the brilliant Isabel Marant has envisioned for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 season. ‘ I love the way they were wearing very masculine trousers to ride horses with lace shirts’…Isabel said of the inspirational sparkle that resulted in an amazing western inspired collection which was given an edgy and contemporary twist. Isabel reimagined an array of classic western pieces such as yoked cowboy shirts, leather gaucho pants and lacy blouses, which are turned into cool and utterly covetable items. The line keeps Marant’s signature feminine vs. masculine balance, so menswear inspired pieces such as pea coats and bomber jackets are masterfully juxtaposed with flirty mini dresses, feminine button front blouses adorned with floral embroideries and attention grabbing furs. The icing on the cake are the oh-so-stunning embroidered cowboy style booties that we truly lust for.
