For Spring 2015, Isabel Marant turned her cool-girl lens on the work of modern artists Antoni Tàpies and Joan Miró, whose color palettes and figurations led her to an African, tribal influence. Waist-cinching leather and fringy belts topped black-and-white graphic patterned halter dresses, tiered, sunburst pleated leather miniskirts, and a floaty, red-and-white printed minidress with a keyhole neckline. Earthy brick red, burnt orange, and oxblood commingled with crisp whites, evocative of the desert. Marant’s offering was also incredibly tactile: Soft, hippie-fringed vest and jacket, rope belts with tassel ends, wispy knits, and a flirty, feathery gilet all made apperances. Despite her seasonal influences, Marant is always consistent—feminine, bohemian, and carefree.
