Isabel Marant - Etoile
At the school of cool Isabel Marant is always the top of her class.
For over twenty years she has excelled in every subject. A student who is always curious and ultra-relevant, she is on our honour roll every term and forever in our little fashion hearts.
French 20/20: A student who has always used an impeccable vocabulary mixed between rock, bohemian and casual. She has mastered an urban grammar and combines ethical pieces with other more urban ones with malice and audacity.
Mathematics 20/20: No need to go round in circles, Isabel is a square student. She is the perfect equation of a fashion where several influences add up and always give the right result. A wardrobe that conveys a sense of travel but is perfectly adapted to real life, and that makes a difference. All in all, more likely to feel concerned, less likely to feel disguised.
History/Geography 20/20: Isabel has always been a class act who knows how to traverse time and space. She has mastered the art of matching the Peru of the Inca Empire with the New York of the 80s, or even matching Sitting Bull with the Prince of Wales.
Music 20/20: Everyone agrees that Isabel is on a roll. Her work is full of music, with Ceronne, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and Prince all appearing in an ideal festival of psychedelic rock, electric pop, smooth reggae and funky electro.
Sport 20/20: Yes, Isabel even allows herself to excel in this discipline. She knows that 'no pain, no gain' but sweating is fine, but with a kick!
Best leggings, best hoodie, best trainer.
Madame Marant knows her stuff. She knows her fashion algebra inside and out and doesn't just restate her lesson by heart, she adds an extra soul, a strength that lasts through the years.
At the Isabel School of Cool, she is the student you want to study with, the one you want to go to the prom with, the one you want to sit in the cafeteria with. She's the top of the class and the popular girl but also the good friend and the perfect girl.
