Paris Fashion Week Runway Looks: Isabel Marant S/S 2012

I've been eagerly awaiting Isabel Marant's Paris show to see what we will all be wearing come summer 2012.  It's definitely an interesting collection remaining true to the past few collections by continuing with an American influence. There were touches of casual athleticism and a hint of hippy luxe with the featuring of tie-dye printed effects and colourful knits.  Fringing re-emerged in some designs which was strongly featured in the winter range and patchwork denim hit the runway in all the colours of the rainbow.  Temperatures, sex appeal and micro mini hemlines rose the stakes for the night time looks which were complimented by chain embellished sandals that will surely make everyone's hot list.

Of course you can't talk Isabel Marant without acknowledging her history for creating the cult jacket of the season. This collection didn't disappoint and looks set to carry on the tradition with a few pieces that could easily rally for 'the jacket' status. I'm sure there will literally be wait lists headed up by avid fans and collectors for the beaded jacket and pants.  The only disappointment with the summer 2012 collection is that there is approximately a five to six month wait before we are able to get our hands on it.
