Meet David

This introduction has been a long time in the making but finally the Isabel Marant 'David' coat has arrived home where it belongs... my wardrobe.  The over-sized fit, flattering cut and the quality... everything really came together in the production of this coat. 

Since I was rather vocal about my love and pre-purchase of this coat, I've had rather numerous requests for the real life images, particularly from those ladies still deciding whether to buy the coat and if 'David' really lives up to all the hype.  I've taken ample photo's to try to help make your considerations easier.  For me, this coat is everything I could have hoped for and more. Definitely worth every single cent!  I'm wearing a size FR 36 (my normal size). Although I could have gone a size smaller I really love the super-sized fit.

The pants are from the Etoile range and are super soft and luxurious to wear.  I can see these being worn so often it will take for them to fall to pieces for us to part ways.  I sized up in these to the FR 38 (as per all the online fit advice).  They definitely run smaller than the normal cut due to the lower sitting waist.  I prefer the straighter leg cut as well with this size and the piece of mind of not flashing the top portion of my derriere when choosing to sit. The FR 38 alleviates that potential issue which frankly, who needs! With sizing it was rather the same deal as the coat. I could have taken my standard FR 36 size in these but I didn't want the spray on, second skin type fit.

So what's the verdict... You like?  Really simple styling but it's a classic and practical outfit.  You can't go too wrong with red, black and white right?

  6. Hi Mandi !
    Wow you look great in it ! Good choice, that's a wonderful piece you'll sure enjoy for years... Looks like it's the same luxurious, warm and comfy fabric as the Sohane coat - the one that opened the A/W 11 show - I bought last year. I must say I didn't pay a lot attention to that David, but now I'm reconsidering it because you really rock it ! As for me, I finally got my grey Berry, and I just love them ! I'll send you some mod pics this week-end.
    xoxo

  7. OMG Mandi, the David coat is simply PERFECT! I was waiting for you to model it. It's a no brainer that this one is a keeper. I would love to own one myself, unfortunately due to my excessive spending habits of lately, I will only be dreaming of this coat. Also, love the pants! I tried them on as well, but they were too short on me, unfortunately. :( Enjoy these gorgeous items in good health! xx Kayin

  12. David is amazing on you! I love the oversized fit. Hoping the weather stays cool enough for you to get more use out of it. I've still got my eye on a pair of IM sweats for now, they use the most amazingly soft fabrics.
