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).
- 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.
