Obsession of the Day: Isabel Marant July Embellished Cotton Jacket

As someone who has a deep-seated love for all things French and rocker inspired, there’s no surprise I’m completely at my knees at the feet of the designs of Isabel Marant. The designer’s mixture of  je nais c’est pas mixed with lead singer appeal makes me want every single thing this designer puts forth. I have a few things on my list for fall but there’s a LONG wish list of items with this designer’s name attached on my Fall Lust List (forthcoming, folks.) I’m simply crazy about Isabel and many fashion-loving editors share my passion.

This jacket is top of the list for many reasons. We’re talking a classic collarless ladies-who-lunch jacket with FEATHER and STONE embellishment and embroidery. It’s a fantastic transition piece to take you into fall and it quite simply perfection on a hanger.

I would add a printed white or grey tank underneath this with black shorts (leather, preferably) and some fabulous wedges (preferably pink.) Take it into Fashion Week and fall fashion territory with black leather pants and a chiffon bow-neck blouse. Wear it to the office with a pencil skirt and black platform pumps. It’s a quiet way to flip your nose at the dress code. Will feather embellishment really endanger that big business dinner? I think not. I’d sign your contract if you were wearing it at a meeting with me and I am a TOUGH CUSTOMER.

Besides, who doesn’t deserve to feel center stage in their own life? Take the spotlight in this jacket. Your audience awaits…
