Wow. Yesterday was just an incredible blur. I got up so very early and my mum and I made our way into the flagship store in Glasgow to queue outside h&m to get our hands on some Isabel Marant pieces.
I had looked at the collection many times as she is one of my favourite designers, I drooled over her SS14 collection as I love her grunge Parisian chic look, it’s so laid back and cool, and I had picked everything I wanted. However when I seen these pieces in person, they were just beautiful, her eye for ethnic detail and the materials – wow just wow. I fell in love, everything was beautifully made and she certainly didn’t sacrifice good materials.
I couldn’t be happier with my purchases and I wish I had got more but as people had been waiting outside since 3am we had to wait almost 2 hours to shop the collection and for 15 minutes only! So, I didn’t manage to pick up her iconic leather trousers as they were sold out! I am pretty upset as those leather trousers and her lace up black jeans are what made me fall in love with her actual collection in the first place, but i’m hoping to try online and in store over the next week and hopefully they get some returns!
Did you go to shop the collection yesterday? how was your experience? and what did you think of the collection? I understand it’s a particular taste and most of my friends would much rather spend their money in topshop and probably have no idea who she is! But it was obviously a huge hit as the website was down and queued for hours.
I hope you like my picks and please let me know about your experiences.
Here is what I bought ( I will take pictures of me wearing the pieces but some are christmas presents my mum got me so I will do half and half.)
Thank you Izzy for an incredible shopping experience and oh for the cute free bracelets that the first groups of people got – I love mine.
PS. The collection looks much nicer in real life – the fit and materials are just impeccable.
