The Paris-based designer knows how to court the cool girls, whether with her chain-trimmed, fringed boots from Spring 2010 or her season-less, breezy floral dresses. Sport one of her signature bohemian, street-ready pieces and you’re guaranteed to get papped.
Naturally, the designer’s own closet—and home—are as inspiring as her
clothing and accessories lines. Here, Marant offers a glimpse into her
Define your style in three words:
Cozy, casual, chic.
A corduroy jean, one of my favorite color block linen tee-shirts from my spring collection, and a nice pair of heel shoes.
: One oversized men’s jacket, a pair of
boots from my last winter collection and some lapis lazuli bracelets. I
can't imagine living without my Martin Margiela caban jacket and my so
lovely vintage blouse.
I love Pierre Hardy shoes, stilettos or wedges. I also have some Lanvin ballerina flats.
I'm wearing a lot of colored delicate bracelets and I love tiny rings and my father’s Piaget father watch.
I love wearing a very short dress or
skirt with an oversized jacket and some high heels. Something super
feminine and sexy that I break with something very masculine.
Best recent discovery:
Scaravelli yoga. I’ve been doing
yoga for 10 years, but I’ve just discovered the Vanda Scaravelli
method, which is based on the spine. I've always had back pain and it
helps me a lot.
One of my favorite stores is "La Hune,” a very nice bookstore in St Germain des Près in Paris.
A great Isamu Noguchi lamp.
Doing a trip for a month at least in California.
My cabin in Fontainebleau in a forest outside of Paris.
Your next trip:
Greece for the summer holidays.
What you’ll be packing for that trip:
A pair of shorts, some espadrilles, a bikini and a lot of books.
