The ultimate Isabel Marant leather jacket collection

My ultimate love and sweet spot is for Isabel Marant's leather jackets.  She tends to bring one out every season, often with subtle changes but that same killer biker cut and flattering fit.  I think the old saying legitimately applies to her leather jacket designs... "you don't fix what ain't broke" right? 

Rosie Huntington-Whitely's collection is impressive and revered, spanning at least three collections. Rosie was responsible for me holding on to obsessive hopes of acquiring a 'Keni' jacket. The surplus and on-going photo's of her in that jacket were an absolute torment prior to me nabbing one. 

Fast forward to present day and it seem that Rosie has once again influenced my wardrobe wish list with her latest jacket from Isabel Marant.   It's called the 'Kady' quilted leather jacket.  The framboise hue is seriously lust worthy and one of the contributing factors making it my top 'to buy' item on my radar for this winter.  The 'Kady' is from the highly anticipated Winter 2012 up-coming range which will surely only gain Isabel Marant further accolades from her fans once it hits the racks. 

Update:  The framboise jacket Rosie is wearing is actually called the 'Kalibo'. Sorry for the in-correct information. I was told by two boutiques the name months prior to it's released. It's still Etoile Isabel Marant though. Happy hunting...

  1. Oh yes, this leather jacket is an ultimate perfection! I found a similiar jacket to Keni on Gestuz but still, the original is so much better!

    OMG Mandi, this beauty is astonishing ! Where did you catch it ? And how come you already know its name ?
    By the way, congratulations about your Rio ! I'm glad they finally fit you and I can't wait to see you wearing them... As for me I just came back from my favorite IM store tonight with two adorable new BFF : the Rex sandals ! They're so gorgeous and comfortable... I can take a pic this week-end and send it to you if you want to have a sneak peek ;-)

    1. I've been stalking various boutiques already re the winter stock. Isn't it a beauty! It's from the Etoile range so far cheaper than the normal leather jackets. It truly is a stunning jacket and reminds me of the Keni/Sade combined. I'm sure it will be a knock out. Ask the store when you go in about it :)

      The Rio's are lovely. I'll be taking them out this weekend and will get some pic's.

      Glad to hear you've been to the IM store (I'm so jealous)! I can't wait to see your Rex sandals. Yes please... some pic's would be great! I'll live through your purchases too he he...

      Hi Mandi !

      Great job, your infos about that beautiful jacket are 100% right - as usual ;-)

      I just have one news to complete them : it will come in framboise, black and also "rouille" (rust).

      Take care !

    3. You're the best! I knew about the framboise and black but not the rouille. Are you getting any? I'm getting the framboise :)

    1. He he... sorry for adding to your wishlist. On the upside it's from the Etoile range and at least half the price of the mainline leather jackets. What a relief! It also comes in black xx

    The name of the third jacket is actually "Kalibo", just FYI

    1. Hey, thanks for the update. That's strange. I've done pre-orders from two different places and they both called it the Kady? Is there another version by any chance?

    3. Thanks so much for these. I had some private buyer pic's but weren't allowed to post them so thanks for sharing these. I really appreciate it.

  10. The Kady doesn't have elastic around the bottom, the Kalibo you've pictured top right in framboise does have the elasticized waistband that's the main way you can tell. I've just ordered my Kady in black & it's on the way, I hope I ordered the correct size!!!
    I'm dying for the Kady in framboise as well did you get yours yet?? The shade of red is so stunning!

    1. Thanks Kelly, I was told it was the Kady months prior to its release by two boutiques, but know now it is the Kalibo :) Thanks for the update though. I really appreciate it. I've actually decided to give it a miss. I've got the Sade and thought it was just too similar. I used the money towards a Balenciaga leather jacket instead :) xx
