Isabel Marant’s fall lineup was one part traditional sailor, one part rogue pirate and one part pretty castaway, served on the rocks, with a twist of Parisian chic. A new silhouette for pants — extra-high-waisted, with skinny legs, done in ivory sailor styles with black buttons, ikat prints and glam studs — refreshed Marant’s tonic, tidying up the whole look. If the pants were the big news, the tops were the highlight, with neat takes on classic naval stripes and Irish knits — a red style in particular — fitted like taut ski sweaters. The combination of the traditional and trendy will satisfy Marant acolytes, and perhaps lure some new ones.
