Isabel Marant for H&M

This. Is a big deal. 

Okay, in the grand scheme of things, this is far from a big deal. But the fact that a poor and cheap college student like myself can own a slice of Isabel Marant is pretty darn cool. If you've been staring at the ground lately and have seen a hybrid of a sneaker and a wedge heel, you can thank Isabel Marnat for the original design. If you've seen any photo of Miranda Kerr wearing beautiful clothes on the street, there's most likely some Isabel Marant thrown in there somewhere. Basically, Isabel Marant has stunning clothing. But at an average price of $1,000 for anything with the label, there was never going to be any Marant in my meager closet. Until BAM, this!

Granted, I still will not buy anything until it goes on sale because I'm frugal to a fault. And granted, the collection will likely sell out because people are obsessed and very punctual with their shopping. But the thought of even having the chance to have an Isabel Marant piece is pretty cool. And by the looks of the collection, this one looks like a keeper. Check out it out here.

I've always been a fan of high end designers producing lines for the populace (ex: Phillip Lim for Target, Versace for H&M), but some think that they're selling out and foregoing luxury for revenue. Alas! I see their point, but I also think it's important for designers to make money. And if this is what keeps them in business and allows them to expand, then I'm all for it! What do you think?


  1. Wow, I had no idea that Marant was starting a new line at H&M! I didn't even know who Marant was! Thanks for helping people like me to become more fashion-savvy :) And I agree with you. I also want a piece of the high end stuff at a lower price and I appreciate when I can develop my style without breaking my budget.

  2. I always love to see who H&M partners with, so hearing about Marant from your blog was exciting! Thanks, can't wait to check it out soon in stores!
