You know when you look at pictures of yourself from middle school and you're all flushed and happy and your hair is wild and your outfit kind of...whatever? There's something about Isabel Marant that reminds us of those days. Her signature slouchy, separates and boyish jackets often call up the 1980's and 1990's--but with Marant it's more juvenile than what we see from her Dynasty-evoking contemporaries. Like House of Holland or Alexander Wang there is something about the irresponsible playfulness that is just. so. good.
