So according to my girlfriend Marant is "thee" designer for women at the moment. She will be doing a collaboration with H&M and for the first time in her career will be designing for men. She has stated that this "mensware" is a one time ordeal, and so my girlfriend is keen on my making purchases for my wardrobe because Marant is "it." Anyways, I don't think the pieces are all that bad but am a bit retiscent about certain items and would like your opinion as to how to wear them/their worthwhilennes. Here is a link to all the items Isabel Marant designed for men: http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq-eye/2013/09/isabel-marant-hm-menswear-collection-prices.html
First, give me your opinion of the capsule.
What are the items that you would consider purchasing?
Thoughts on the items I've considered, and my opinion of them:
Simple jeans, with cool arrow detail on its sides. This capsule is inspired by Southwestern native design and I honestly dig it, especially its subtleness. My style is not ostentatious but I'm willing to breakaway from solid jeans if the design is simple enough that it doesn't necessitate a second glance. A simple "nice" is all I prefer as a response from an observer.
Ok, having said the latter, considering these jeans is going slightly overboard for me. In fact, I've never purchased a white jean in my life nor a jean with any type of design on them. Yet I still think these jeans are somehow quite simple. The black native design on the white template works as a desert's emblem is a lone cactus. I would wear these jeans only with long black t shirts which fall an inch (give-take) below my crotch area, and the Marant suede boots;
Alright, so I don't really know what to think of these boots. I like its simplistic design, but at the same time they do look like designer Uggs? They would, but these boots are thinner at the front. Anyways, I'm at the fence with these. I like them but they might be too unisex for me. So here are the models wearing the boots:
So yeah, I think that dude on the right would look cool if he was wearing a long black-t instead of that sweater. And I think the boots generally work in these outfits, but the kicker is that they're $199.00, worth it? They're plain enough to be versatile but the price is a bit steep.
Here's the other color,
This sweater is a must for me.
Just a question, who would consider these and in what setting would you wear them? I think they look great but I have never purchased any leather pants so am wondering the latter. Also, is 350.00 a reasonable price for these? I mean, that's like a PS4...
These pants would be fantastic if they didn't have zippered pockets, and if you click the GQ link above you will notice, in viewing the better quality image, that they have zippers at their legging too. What is that for? Any purpose, or just a fashionista idiom?
Anyways, thanks for scrolling through the items. Have me know your opinion. Cheers,
