Isabel Marant Pre-Fall 2019

For pre-fall, Isabel Marant offered a collection of strong silhouettes for the fashion-minded in want of ease —  toeing the label line. She emphasized shoulders, her signature, which felt especially prominent this season, offering them firmly, power-suit style, on a collarless boiler suit as well as a double-breasted plaid suit jacket. They were accentuated in layers — four pleats on each side — on a printed dress, and slowly gave way to wide, puffed out sleeves on a comfortable rendition of the burgundy boiler suit.
Standouts included a buttery, brown leather blouse and trouser set — slightly gathered at the shoulders, the top had slightly bulky sleeves and was paired with elegant, high-waisted trousers in the same material. A tan corduroy dress was handsome in a similar way, with puffy sleeves that were tightly cinched at the wrist in a nice balance of structure and flow. Elegant, monochrome looks, in both cases, which highlighted the stylishness of the cuts.
Outerwear included a fuzzy ivory wool coat and an ultra-light rain trench. The label continues its expansion, with a new store in Milan and plans for further locations in Brussels and Barcelona in the coming months.

Isabel Marant Étoile RTW Fall 2019

For her secondary label, Isabel Marant doubled down on comfort, considering what she would want to wrap herself up in when the weather turned chilly. A fuzzy plaid shirt thus became a poncho, its zip-up collar adjustable for extra warmth. An oversize, quilted vest, too, looked cozy — it had texture, in the form of braid patterns — and smart, as well, cinched at the waist with a leather belt. The designer was equipping her young, fashion-conscious customer with solid outerwear that doubled as a protective layer.
Another example came in the form of a thick brown leather jacket, like a pilot’s jacket from the last century, repurposed for a new era — the shoulders had Eighties-style extra puff. A pale purple sweatshirt was embellished with quilted shoulder patches, and an acid-washed jean jacket had a fuzzy wool collar.
For dressier occasions, she offered an elegant black lace dress, snug in all the right places for sexiness, and an extra ruffle for a touch of the romantic. Her peasant blouses had large sleeves and two ruffles on each shoulder. 
She kept her waists high and the sweaters chunky, for the most part. The collection was all about being in the comfort zone: the

Isabel Marant RTW Spring 2018

Now the cool boys in Isabel Marant’s entourage can rest easy: The French designer has finally come through with men’s wear, and it’s here to stay. “I gave in to popular demand,” she admitted backstage, saying the campaign had been going on since her popular H&M hookup four years ago. The guys were offered thick gauge knits that poured over their shoulders like treacle, Windbreakers and toothsome trackpants, with rope flip-flops or slides on the feet.
But back to the girls. The show started with crisp white: frilled shirts; ingénue broderie anglaise minidresses; denim with circular patterns piercing the legs; a double-breasted jacket tucked into trousers that were loose on the thigh and tight at the ankle. Sporty details started to crop up.
By midway point, the collection hit its stride, brash colors and metallic materials bringing a sporty-glam mien: boiler suits rolled down to reveal swimwear; trackpants were cut from shimmery florals and paired with voluminous tops; lightweight blousons could pass for shirtdresses, and high-cut briefs had the aplomb of daring shorts. Whenever she went too high on the leg and too voluminous on the sleeve, it didn’t quite work, like wearing stilettos to the beach. Performance water sports details —

Tejen Jewelry, Urban Zen Alums Mark Kroeker and Isabel Encinias Grow Distribution, Designs

Two of Donna Karan’s “babies” are growing up. Mark Kroeker, who helped launch Karan’s Urban Zen line and served as its design director, and Isabel Encinias, who was design director of jewelry at both Donna Karan and Urban Zen and director of the Haiti Artisan Project, are slowly growing their fine jewelry line Tejen.
After debuting the brand in January and showing it at the Couture jewelry show in Las Vegas in June, the duo is expanding their wholesale presence to Browns in London, Tiny Jewel Box in Washington, D.C., and Grange Hall in Dallas. The line will also sell in the forthcoming boutique Artoriz in Shanghai, and possibly at Maxfield in Los Angeles.

Tejen’s diamond and 18-karat yellow gold earrings. 

Made from 18-karat Fairmined gold from South America and white diamonds certified by the Responsible Jewelry Council and The Kimberley Process, the line is based on ancient shapes — Tejen means obelisk in Egyptian — and motifs. The signature diamond setting is an inverted princess cut surrounded by a cage of baguettes. Retail prices for the core collection range from $ 715 for geometric gold studs to $ 8,455 for a gold and diamond choker. The most popular piece in the collection is a pair of
