Sixteen years after Marant launched her Paris-based contemporary label, the designer is opening her first U.S. store this week on Broome Street in New York City. If the store has been a long time coming, it’s not because Marant has struggled to gain recognition. Rather, she’s been quietly building a healthy, independent business fueled by a cult following of models, starlets (Kirsten Dunst, Rachel Bilson) and French fashion influentials (French Vogue’s Emmanuelle Alt) that have raised her global profile exponentially in the past few years. I adore all that is [Isabel Marant], check out her AMAZING booties on my [MUST HAVE] list, & will be making this her new Soho store first port of call when back in NYC this month.
