The Latest Addition to the Bruton Street Fash Pack

No, this is not a joke and this is not a tease. Your heard me. It's happening and it's true. The cult Parisian designer Isabel Marant is coming to town and bringing her delicious garments to Mayfair's finest street to reside at 29 Bruton. While no official opening date has yet been announced, you can be sure that there will be buzz, fashion lights and beautiful people populating the new space and strutting their stuff with her latest collection through the streets of London. Marant will move into a 3,5000-square-foot premise, and will become neighbour to Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney and Diane Von Furstenberg. Yes, dear. I did say the Finest.

Being a hardcore fan myself since 2004, I've never once not seen her catalogues, and never once not bought anything from one season to the next. I've always clung like glue to her ankle boots, floral prints and skin-tight leather trousers. And her knits have a way to make any look seem effortless yet feminine. There's something to be said about laid back French fashion. It's just undeniably cool.

Take a look at her exquisite A/W 11 collection here.


  1. I bet there will be a lot of happy fashionista's around London when the store opens. I would still die for a pair of her boots even if I looked a complete fool in them!

  2. Hey - good to hear from you again. Love this a/w collection. I could seriously damage the bank account if I were anywhere near the new store!

  3. That top is lovely and I adore the trousers.
    Must visit their shop once opened. Thank you for this tip;-)

  4. love the top!!!


  5. Wow ... cant wait till it opens.
    No need to cross the channel any longer ...

  6. Loving all the French fashion in London right now - Maje is my go to store at the moment - love it!

  7. Le sigh. This ain't good news for the household budget. And it's just next to Vanessa Bruno, so it's temptation all around...
    PS: You are more than invited to pop in and have a glass with us, but in your own interest, give it another week or two. Little L and I are still sneezing and coughing with what seems to be a nasty version of the flu. LOL D

  8. On hearing news that Isabel Marant is to open in London, I ran ten laps around my sitting room and then... hyperventilated.

    My credit card is going to take SUCH a battering but, whoever said the best things in life are free, had obviously never seen Marant's fringed boots. ;0)

  9. I love french fashion. I've been there twice, and seriously can't wait to go back. Sometime, I hope!

    That's so cool that she's going to be near you. I hope you can go to events and such!

  10. isabelle marant, mais oui! such a great collection!
