Spring/ Summer 2011: Isabel Marant

Right now Isabel Marant is hot, in her own words: “it's been hard to keep our New York store, which opened this spring, stocked with merchandise: As soon as a new shipment comes in, pfff, it's gone."

Marant took her first trip to California earlier this year and fell in love with its chill vibe. This collection, she said, was an ode to surfing and the early days of skateboarding. That seventies feeling meant there were cutoffs in denim or corduroy with everything from bright check button-downs to shrunken fisherman sweaters to lacy tanks. Sports references came fast and furious: A vintage-looking silk baseball jacket in embroidered washed silk was followed by nipped and fitted rugby-stripe dresses and slightly oversize football-jersey tees. On the more girly side, Marant's signature cropped jacket was cut from red bandanna fabric, and a strapless dress was smocked from a Liberty-esque purple floral print.

P.s. Check out Carmen Kass again with her short hair ... looking good.
