Since we were shooting our new arrivals for the store over the weekend, I decided to bring these Isabel Marant for H&M coats with me to squeeze in a few shots between takes.
Honestly, I wasn't too thrilled when I'd previewed the collection as the signature items looked a tad too "ugly sweater" and generally unflattering. The shag coat (pictured above) reminded me of a rug I recently disposed of, and if you throw that hooded sweater-robe on an unsuspecting vagabond, I would've unquestionably surmised he/she picked it up at some souvenir boutique in the midwest.
But I think Isabel Marant's wit is that her aesthetic is very much 70s bohemian meets modern urbanite. Two divergent styles but each famously popular. Her prints are discernible of a certain era or place but her cuts are ever fresh, youthful. WELL PLAYED, MARANT.
At any rate, has anyone been looking to purchase the sold out collection on eBay? My friend sent me this screenshot below of the embellished jacket from the collaboration. I don't know if I should be surprised but I do know that I painfully regret not camping out to buy out the inventory of this thing when I had the chance.
