Isabel Marant Sherman puffer jacket

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  When I spotted Emmanuelle Alt wearing the 'Elori' black leather puffer jacket by Isabel Marant I fell in love with entire over sized and black on black look.  I figured if I ever came across the jacket, I would buy it and replicate her look, in hope that I too could do it justice.

As it turns out, I've just recently found the alternate version of Emmanuelle's jacket that was made the same season (the 'Sherman'). Although it is the exact same design, the fabric composition is different. The 'Sherman'  has a cotton outer, complete with leather trimmings and with the silkiest feel against the skin.  It's filled with goose down as well so its super warm and cosy.  I feel like a walking talking sleeping bag in it and yet I love it!

Since the over sized look also gives you a 'Michelin man' frame, who would of thought that the opposite sex would actually find it an 'attractive' jacket for a woman to wear.   To my surprise, my partner thinks it to be a 'killer' look (always a bonus) and since it's practical, it made for a smart choice. End result, two thumbs up.  Who would of thought a 'practical' yet shapeless item could be such a success.




I wore this for our outing into the city today.  I have to say, this jacket is by far the most comfortable piece of clothing I own. I've really taken to it.  It was perfect for our ambling. I thought I would add a few photo's I took of the Forum in Flinders Street. Such an amazing, old and recognizable piece of architecture.  The buildings in Melbourne never fail to draw my gaze.  I'm always astonished by the sheer beauty, design ingenuity and limitless imagination that it takes to create such beautiful structures.

    1. Thanks Mica. It definitely needed both the skinny jeans and a heel to stop me looking round :)

  11. This jacket would've been perfect for the lousy weather here! I never thought oversized coats would look this good until I got hooked on IM. BTW, you'll be pleased to hear that the temperature will be hitting 25 C this week. It's still 8 C in the morning! Yup, English weather and all.

  14. Yep, I actually love the marshmallow puff look! It looks super cozy but also has a nice stylish element because of how oversized it is and the large quilting. Really gorgeous jacket!
