After seasons of predictable boho luxe, Isabel Marant pivoted in another direction for Fall/Winter 2015. Aiming for a fusion of Nordic knitwear and military style, she showed one of her most refined and polished collections to date.

An unfussy line-up of patterned jackets, ikat-printed miniskirts, and skintight pants trimmed with military buttons opened the show. In tasteful après-ski style, knitwear played a convincing part in the collection, with its athletic fit and funneled collars providing pragmatic style for the colder months. Short skirts and frocks were less weather-oriented, but still lovely, especially when Marant paired them with her beautiful parkas, military jackets, and printed bombers. Experimentation was subtle on the Marant runway, and included lace-up closures and a new padded pointy shoulder (on slim-fitting knits, this looked especially cool). Given the dense fabrics of the presentation, it was surprising to see the show close on barely-there sheer mini dresses with ruffled bib and peplum details, but the move is classically Marant. She’s always there for festival-wear when you need it. It’s easy to see why women snap up her collections by the armful — they are easy to wear, well tailored, and irrepressibly European.
