Another Step for French Fashion in America: Isabel Marant’s New SoHo Boutique

Spring-Summer 2010

As an admirer of French fashion (subtle ladywear + fit + quality), I was excited to visit Isabel Marant’s first Stateside store in SoHo (469 Broome Street at Greene Street).

Observations:

  • Silk and linen distressed clothes
  • “Pastel Pirate “- grey/beige skinny striped shorts and pants paired with light pink tops
  • Garish, embellished things – American-exclusive?
  • ‘Lower’-priced Etoile line – grungy madras + army fatigue pants = wrinkled leftovers

Are all of the charming French chic items sold out? Like NYTimes Critical Shopper Cintra Wilson, I was underwhelmed and agree that many of the fashionista staple items can can be found at affordable prices elsewhere.
