ISABEL MARANT RESORT 2021 COLLECTION
Isabel Marant creates a collection that will have us gravitating towards statement pieces that last beyond a single season.
August 7, 2020
The Isabel Marant Cruise 2021 collection features shoulders and sleeves are sculpted with unmistakable ’80s exaggeration where the overall construction of each piece is minimal and easy to wear.
“It’s more sophisticated, but not complicated,” she said of the lineup, citing midcentury-modern artists such as Miró and Calder as well as her intention to convey a slightly androgynous feminine persona.
The designer has stayed faithful to the ’80s referencing with acid-washed denim skirts and stirrup pants in the palest pink. The palette duality is between light and soothing shades and assertive tones of green, red, and navy.
As for the dresses—in draped velour or fluid Tencel with cut-outs, take your pick—one can only look longingly and hope there will be occasions on the horizon to justify them and their edgy metal-capped boots. Otherwise, Marant’s quilted layers look more relevant than ever. “The confinement forced me to be very pragmatic,” she said. “This was not a moment for being superficial.”
