Marco Zanini Is Named Creative Director At Schiaparelli [Telegraph] Both the ready-to-wear and couture labels will be put under his attention…Isabel Marantâ€™s Husband, Jerome Dreyfuss, Turned Down The Option Of An H&M Collab [Vogue UK] While the duo are both fashion focused career wise, they try not to drag that into their personal lives….
Isabel Marant has long been a cult fave among the street style-saavy set, but business is booming and her strain of laidback cool has long gone mainstream. Case in point? Those wedge sneakers that are popping up all over the streets: They might not all be Marant’s, but they’re certainly all Marant-inspired. And she’s not exactly happy about it, according to The Telegraph
Maison Martin Margiela: The Maison Martin Margiela design team’s take on menswear was anything but ordinary. Suiting came in pieces like a black zip jacket with enormous oversize shirt cuffs, done up with canary yellow brushstrokes, which matched the slouchy trou streaked with paint stripe. A white buttondown featuring magenta megacuffs paired nicely with slouchy brushstroke pants. Pinstripes peppered the collection, whether in vest-laden painsuiting with a knotted halter top that resembles a men’s tie or a skirt suit with armbands and a scalloped skirt fashioned to look like the curved hem of a suit jacket that had a bit of a mod look when paired with black calf-length booties. Eveningwear came in bannerlike silk columns with indecipherable writing cut up and hodgepodged together. Ever the trailblazers, it’s not surprising the enigmatic Margiela maison would put forth a translating-challenged message onto the runways.
