Isabel Marant - Women's ready to wear show Spring/Summer 2018 in Paris (with interview)

Designer : Isabel MarantAtmosphere: In the gardens of the Palais Royal, in the middle of the Colonnes de Buren, Isabel Marant releases a new chic and sporty collection, with masculine silhouettes. Collection. English embroidery seen at the start of the show, between black and white, for light and summery outfits, such as shorts, tops, blouses and mini-dresses. Very quickly the sportwear appears with hoodies, windbreakers and light coats, but all made from high-tech and waterproof materials, all in deep colours of pink, raspberry and green. Of course the miniskirts, short dresses, shorts and asymmetry, in short everything that constitutes the vocabulary of Isabel Marant, is there, but reinvented with puffed sleeves, shining textures and stud effects. The men, as far as they are concerned, dare to wear oversized sequin jumpers over leggings. To note: It’s Kaia Gerber who opens the show and Gigi Hadid who closes it. + Ariel Wizman was the DJ of the showInterview with Isabel Marant:The idea for the show was really based around sport and English embroidery and I wanted to start like that, in a very pure way and return to the colours and become more and more sporty with this energy that I always try to have in my shows. The quite technical materials are really materials which come from the sport domain with breathable and waterproof properties, I had a lot of fun with that. Finally when we see people in the street there’s an enormous amount of people in trainers, jogging bottoms and personally I have to say that it’s a trend I really love, so I just had to add my own touch with a particular look, maybe more fashionable. I was harassed by all the guys in my office, by my boyfriend who didn’t stop telling me why you can’t do that for men, and so I ended up giving in.Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information).
