Pre-order Winter 2012 Isabel Marant Bekket, Bird and Bazil sneakers NOW!

Even though I'm suppose to be on hiatus due to not being well, I had to share this with you all. It's far to exciting.  The Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers for the up-coming Winter 2012 range are now available for pre-order from Espejto.  And what a range!  Five colour ways are up already and going super fast. The sneakers are normally considered to be the pre-collection so are released earlier than the main 'ready to wear' line (RTW).  The anticipated delivery window is estimated to be between June to August 2012 for the sneakers.

A little note on the style name, all is as yet a little uncertain, but Espejto have three of the sneakers names as 'Bekket', and another two variations called 'Bird' and 'Bazil'. The difference between them looks to be in the materials used but all look to be a replication of the basic shape/design of the previous Bekket and Willow sneakers.  Check them out for yourself and see which ones take your fancy.  Be sure to peruse the notes at the bottom of this blog post to assist you with accessing Espejto.

 Notes on how to shop on Espejto 

I thought I would just copy this from one of my previous posts (hey... I'm sick so I'm taking some major short cuts) as new shoppers sometimes run into a few obstacles. So here is some assistance with the site.

All of the sneakers pictured above are available for pre-order online from http://www.espejto.it/.  You will need to register on the site before you are able to see any of the Isabel Marant RTW or Etoile Isabel Marant pieces. Once your registration is complete, you then have to 'Log in' (top of the page).  Once logged in, simply click on the tab 'Designers' and then 'Isabel Marant (pre-order)' (the Etoile range is listed separately) and then on 'Shop by Isabel Marant (pre-order)' and the pre-orders will appear.  There are obviously a lot more pieces on the site than these (including the yet to be released Summer 2011 items) so check it out for yourself.

Please note that I am not affiliated with the site in any way, I just thought it is a nice gesture to share some stockist information, especially for the rarer pieces.  I can speak from my first-hand shopping experience with Espejto and highly recommend them.   The team there have provided me with a fair amount of assistance and have been exceptionally helpful (and patient with me).  

A note regarding the taxes, Espejto includes the VAT in the prices (as they are in the EU).  If you are getting your order shipped outside Europe and therefore need the VAT removed from the price, you will have to email Espejto to get them to invoice you directly excluding the VAT. Espejto also accept Paypal which I have found the easiest to use. That's my little tip as a fellow shopper outside the EU.  Enjoy...

    I've registered and everything, but they're not under the Isabel Marant preorder page, and when I find them under the search and click on them it says 'product not found!' Have they sold out already?!

    1. Hi, I have just checked the site and they are definitely all there. Have you logged in? You have to make sure you log in prior to being able to see any if the Isavel Marant items (enter your email and password).

      Once you have done that they should appear under the Isabel Marant (pre order) section. If you are still having trouble, send an email to info@espejto.it and let them know that you have just registered and you are trying to see the Isabel Marant (pre orders - sneakers) but its not working and they will sort it out for you. Let me know how you go

  9. Lovely lady- you always have the most amazing & helpful info so thank you..I refuse to miss out this time on these amazing IM's. Can you tell me if Im an Australian size 8 what size should I go for?

    1. Hi Luju, I'm glad you're getting a pair. They are amazing. I'm an Australian 6 and I got the 36. In saying that, they are very fitted. I tried the 37 as well and they were a tad big on me (not much though), but I think with thicker style socks would have been good. If you want to be able to wear socks, and allow for a bit of room (remember your feet will swell a bit in summer as well with the heat), I would probably go the 39 for the comfort factor. Also if you have a wide foot, definitely go the 39 as they are a more narrow shoe in the toe box. I hope that helps. xx

  10. Thank you so much for sharing this!
    So happy to have found this shop (it's even an Italian one and I am Italian as well but didn't know it!)

    Hi
    When you pre-order, is the amount drawn from your account right away or not until Espejto has received the item..? Just a bit early, if you have to pay now for something you will not receive until June - August.. - especially when there's so much you "need" to buy for spring/summer :-).. (going to Paris in the Easter and from experience I know this will be rather expensive, especially when I always tend to stay close to an Isabel Marant store ;-)..
    When you pre-order, do you still have the same return/refund possibilities as if it was a "normal" purchase..?
    Have a fantastic weekend :-)..

    1. Hi there, Happy weekend!

      All of my pre-orders I've used Paypal for so the payment was taken straight away. I'm not 100% certain that it is the same for credit card payment (I think it is though). I asked at the time I did my pre-orders if they take returns and they said yes.

      The best way is to email Francesca (I deal with her and she is absolutely lovely) at info@espejto.it. That way you can confirm about when the money is taken and also the return policy. Make sure you check the return policy as I have a feeling there 'may' be a re-stocking or exchange fee but can't recall. Plus that may have changed it so best to get that advice directly.

      Regarding ordering so early, I was the same with mine. I don't like 'waiting'. I have to say at the time seeing all the money going out without actually getting the item was a little difficult but I'm so glad I did now as I got items that I probably wouldn't have been able to get (they sell out so quickly) and I fear I may have missed out. Also I've spent so much in the past few months my savings were low, so its been nice for items to just arrive from the store that I actually don't have to pay for now. All the treats are currently coming in and I'm so now I'm glad I pre-ordered/pre-paid months ago.

      It really depends on what you are after though... Going to Paris you are right. There will be so much there. Will you have the option to purchase any of the items there?

      Hi again,
      Thanks, I will get in touch with the Espejto team. Still not sure whether to pre-order though, as actually I may not need a third pair of IM sneakers ;-)... I already have the black Bettys and the beige Willows, however, one may need the black Bazils as well..???? But again, who knows if I'm fed up with sneakers when the Bazils hit the stores (thus it should be possible to return them).. But the price is good - and the sneakers are more or less impossible to find anywhere in Paris, at least they were the last couple of times I was there, so wouldn't count on finding them there.. I'm so looking forward to Paris, especially the wide selection of IM, as you can find a lot of stuff you never see in the webshops etc.. Have to say that I'm not that impressed with the clothes that have hit the stores so far, much of it seems a bit too basic.. After seeing some of the clothes real life, I'm just glad that I didn't purchase anything online and it has made me wait until I can see and try things on.. Also the sizing seems a bit unpredictable.. So it will be so good to check out all the stores (I usually visit all 3 IM stores as well as some of the other stores carrying IM (Le Bon Marché, Lafayette (where you get 10% discount as tourist), Merci, etc.. Prices are good, as the IM prices generally are lower in France + the tax refund (for non-EU residents) - so you should go there sometime - not just for the shopping though, but for Paris :-)

      I really like your blog :-) - and also, thanks for advise on the Balmain belts..

    3. Hi Berit, Good thing is Easter is soooo close now so you'll be in Paris living the French way, eating, drinking... and shopping :) I hope you have a wonderful time (no need for wishful thinking there).

      I have three pairs of the IM sneakers so I'm holding off more. I have the black Bekkets which I literally wear to death but in saying that you have the gorgeous black Betty's.

      That's so good to know about the 10% tourist discount as Lafeyette. My partner and I had Paris all booked for May this year but unfortunately something unexpected came up so we had to cancel. We were so looking forward to it so for now Paris remains on the list. Please let me know how your Easter trip goes (I'll live through you at the moment).

      I've heard the IM stores (and others) are brilliant and cheaper in Paris. It makes sense. I agree with waiting now especially since it is just around the corner and you'll get to see a full collection and have your choice. Much better idea.

      Glad to help with the Balmain. I hope you enjoy yours. They are worth every cent :)

    Hi Mandi,
    Will give you an update on my Paris trip after Easter - and hopefully all my great finds ;-).. Always good to have great places on the list - and traveling around Europe is by far easier when you live in Europe already; when you live down under, it takes a bit more planning :-).. Afraid that I didn't get the Balmain belts - as the ones that I found was either too small or too big; so still looking :-)..

    1. Absolutely. It's a long haul from Australia. The jet lag is the killer for the first week as well. Needs factoring in. I'm sure you'll find some Balmain belts in Paris :) Enjoy your trip (in case we don't chat before hand) and happy Easter! Please have a macaroon for me :)

    Thank you so much for giving the heads up on the pre-orders!!!! I've been on all the wait lists for the past seasons and missed them all! I was hoping they had the electric blue ones for order but these are great too. I dont live far from the IM store in New York so I'll see if they have started their list yet...Thanks again! :)

    3. Hi Yesenia, Unfortunately I can't help with that sorry. Each store is different with their deliveries. I've noticed some places have certain colours and other boutiques that have ordered the same colours don't yet have them. The best way to keep up to date would be to email the boutique and ask. They should have an estimate but even they are influenced by when they receive them from IM

    1. You've got two of the colours I have! I was thinking the anthracite. Although they are really similar to the black I just thought they are so classic. If you are after something really different and can pull them off the gold look pretty cute!

I believe all the sneakers have already pre-sold at Espejto now though.

    Just a word on Espejto.... I pre-ordered in April and my shoes were shipped at the end of July, supposedly. I inquired when they did not have any tracking on the DHL site and I guess DHL lost my shoes & espejto refunded me and barely communicated whether or not I could get a new pair.
    Very poor customer service in my opinion!

    Still waiting .....
