Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2012-13: Wild Wild West Femininity

Isabel Marant's Fall Winter 2012-13 collection is firmly rooted in the Wild Wild West but with plenty of purity and feminine decoration.  On show was plenty of contra-coloured piping, mother of pearl buttons, studded panelled shirts, embroidered and embellished desert flower reliefs, ruffled lace, pleated satin, laser-cut leather minis and jeans, suede and leather trousers in slim cuts with gleaming buttons and detailing.  The cowboy boot was reinvented to modern day cool, Marant style, with a spur-heel and ammunition belt strap at the ankle.  This collection definitely has a strong presence and conveys a mighty powerful look.

  8. It's really interesting to see the different items that are catching people's eye. My favourite, yet safe look is the red fitted pants, white lace top and the black oversized coat. Ah... perfection!

    1. Hi Perona,

      I think there are some that have a combination of materials. Check this link out as there are some more of the shoes on this site including other boots. I like the ones with the silver cross strap over the front :)

  12. A very cohesive and strong collection. Not too crazy wild west but definitely drew inspiration from the style. I LOOOOOOVE this collection. Bad BAD for my pocket.
