“It’s easy! This is not ‘pull your hair out’ fashion—we just want comfort.” shared Isabel Marant. This perfectly describes her latest Fall 2019 Menswear Collection—a stellar array of basics and staple styles upgraded with a luxurious touch and a cool Parisienne edge. Marant was never one to go for show-stopping clothes. From her womenswear to her menswear, she’s always been about providing the best quality and chic pieces that feel as great as they look. This season, she had a primary focus on knits, manipulating them to create plush textures and cutting them up into slip-on sweaters and sporty sweatshirts. When it comes to comfort, no other garments come close to such knits, which are bound to be her bestsellers come fall. A touch of soft tailoring was also involved here, particularly on a dark navy suit that’s as business causal as a Marant-dressed gentleman can get, as well as an ecru set of separates made out of stark linen. Both looks evoked that nonchalant sophistication that Marant has since developed as her signature style. While there isn’t much excitement regarding these clothes’ design, one can’t deny their allure of a comfortable and leisure lifestyle!
