Isabel Marant is a designer I seriously admire. She has an amazing ability and talent to create absolutely perfect (yes - perfect - which means it cannot get any better!) off-duty wear. I am totally obsessed with her and can say that she is the only designer whose collections I cannot wait to see every season. I once went to London Liberty store specifically to touch one of her jumpers.. How sad is that? :-)
To any other IM fans out there who are in a similar situation/frustration as me I wanted to show the 2 items I have found on the high street which are pretty similar to original Marant' designs. One of them is a fringed jumper I have been lusting over for ages - the same one I went to touch in Liberty :) And another one is a beautiful boho-style Summer top which I would gladly exchange my cat for (OK, maybe just half of the cat!). Needless to say, I have just placed orders for both of these cut-price beauties and even though they will never replace the real Marant, I can still wear a piece of her idea.
