Marina’s Must-Haves: Isabel Marant’s Victorian Jacket

-------

isabel marant

I’m looking for a spring jacket to wear as a layer piece. While browsing the Internet, I came across this Isabel Marant Victorian-inspired number. Made with ramie and lace, it’s very feminine, and the fabrication along with its puff sleeves make it something really special. It’s a very light jacket but will bring tons of pizzazz to any look. While you can pair it with jeans (black, white, or regular blues) or an LBD, it’s definitely not your everyday jacket. However, it’s the perfect wearable standout piece.

Holiday Is Here Again

-------

HolidayHere’s to new beginnings. Iconic travel magazine Holiday, whose pages were graced with such bylines as Steinbeck, Kerouac, Didion, and Hemingway before it shuttered in 1977, will relaunch this month. Creative director Franck Durand (who previously lent his keen eye to the likes of Balmain and Isabel Marant) will be heading up the title alongside Marc Beaugé. The publication’s 21st-century debut boasts an Ibizan dispatch from novelist Arthur Dreyfus, photography by Josh Olins (below), and a recherché peek into Inez & Vinoodh’s Manhattan loft. Dubbed “The 69 Issue,” the Fall/Winter 2014 offering, which is currently being celebrated via a window at Colette, draws from the freewheeling sensibilities of 1969. And for those whose tastes for mid-century jet-set glamour aren’t to be sated by print alone, still to come are a café and sister clothing line. Only time will tell, but we’ve got a hunch that where Holiday is concerned, absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder.

Holiday‘s 373rd issue hits newsstands April 5, with exclusive images debuting on Style.com.

Maximum Utility: Workwear-Inspired Gear on the Fall Runways

-------

Tommy HilfigerThe long and bitter winter we’ve endured has brought out the inner survivalist in we editors at Style.com. And based on the influx of updated utilitarian gear we noticed on the Fall ’14 runways, the extreme conditions got designers thinking more practically, too. Alexander Wang made references to hunting, mountain climbing, and other outdoor sports with his new collection, which featured functional pockets of all sorts. His Brooklyn Navy Yard show was a parade of cargo pants, suede workwear jackets, canteen bags, and efficient shifts featuring individual compartments for Moleskine notebooks, smartphones, lipsticks, and lighters—everything his downtown customer needs to pound the pavement in style. Olivier Rousteing, meanwhile, transported us to a different kind of jungle (one stalked by Amazonian supermodels, no less) with his glam safari-inspired wares at Balmain. Surplus details also turned up at Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant, Acne Studios, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Elsewhere, Tommy Hilfiger put his own all-American spin on the industrial trend by whipping up a series of raw denim pieces and “Marlboro Man” coats that suggested, as he told Style.com, the “real heartland America.”

These fashion-forward riffs on blue-collar uniforms will appeal to girls who’ve been rocking Carhartt jackets lately. At the very least, the spacious pockets will give us reason to forgo a purse. We’ll be ready to drop everything and run when the zombie apocalypse (or the next Polar Vortex) strikes.

Here, a slideshow of Fall’s utilitarian highlights.

Marina’s Must-Haves: Five Shades of Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant Sunglasses

Isabel Marant has mastered the art of designing hits. Her wedge sneakers, bow pumps, fringed boots, and so on became instant must-haves. Every girl wants that boho-Parisian-chic look that Marant does so well. And soon, they’ll have a new way to get it, because the French designer has teamed up with Oliver Peoples to launch her first-ever sunglasses collection for spring. Two shapes—an oversized called Daria and an aviator dubbed Matt—will be hitting stores this month. Each style comes in five colors, and the lenses are so light that you could get away with wearing the shades on a cloudy day, or even inside. As Marant put it, “I wanted timeless sunglasses that you can wear every day, even when it rains. To me, accessories make your look.” The sunglasses are priced at $365, and will be available at Oliver Peoples, Isabel Marant boutiques, and select retailers.

Marina’s Must-Haves: Warming Up and Keeping It Cool

Marina's Must-Haves

Anyone who knows me knows that I get pretty excited about all things fashion, whether it’s a shoe, a bag, a dress, or beyond. (I am a market director, after all!) I’m always looking for the next item, the next trend, or simply what I must have. From here on out, I’ll be offering a regular rundown of what I’m crazy about, and sharing my wish list with you. Of course, we’re excited to hear what you’re crazy for, too, so please share your favorite new designers, trends, and products with us in the comments.

1. Now that I’m a mother of two, I’ve found myself carrying more and more things in my handbag. Chloé’s Baylee bag looks professional and, thanks to its cross-body strap, is also a practical, hands-free weekend option. It’s been on my wish list for a while, so I think it might be time to give in.

2. Thanks to Isabel Marant, we have all been wearing high-top wedges; thanks to Phoebe Philo, we’ve been addicted to slip-ons. Now comes Karl Lagerfeld, changing the high-fashion sneaker game with his Spring ’14 couture trainers. After last week’s Chanel Couture show, we all wanted to go back to the nineties. If you too were inspired by the runway and are looking for a (slightly more affordable) pair now, check out Lanvin’s holographic kicks, which retail for $695.

3. By January, my skin is so dry, even with all the extra moisturizer I insist on using. I’ve found that fashion-friendly sweatshirts are softer on my skin than any cashmere. It’s also been a uniform around the Style.com offices—everyone is wearing their sweats to work.

4. It’s freaking cold in New York. It’s never been this cold as long as I’ve lived here. That being said, a great snow boot is a necessity. O Jour’s furry-lined pair is all I want to wear. Charlotte Casiraghi was spotted wearing them last week.

5. While trying to decide who did the best job staying warm and looking chic during the Couture shows in Paris, Emmanuelle Alt stood out. Thanks to her, I’m now craving Isabel Marant Étoile’s quilted kimono coat.
