PARIS -- Isabel Marant, the Parisian designer with the magic, casual, cool touch, showed her spring collection Friday afternoon on the Left Bank.
The look: A Cal-French romance with leather and lace, ruffles and frayed denim, and several must-have shoes, including sweet, bow-topped Birkenstock-like sandals, and moccasin sandal booties.
Key pieces: Black menswear blazer over romantic, white ruffled mini skirt. Sweet peasant blouse over pleat-front, tapered black leather pants. Petrol blue pants with fold over waistband worn with baby doll top. Petal pink denim jacket, shorts and jeans in fraying cross-hatch pattern. Cotton voile ribbon sundresses. Cage sequin jacket and cuffed shorts.
