As a teenager, Isabel Marant restyled military jackets and raided her father's sweater collection to stock her own wardrobe, showing her first streak of rebellion against conventional style—and foreshadowing her future as a cult-favorite designer. In 1989, the 22-year-old launched her first knitwear label, Twen, and 3 years later, the Isabel Marant clothing collection followed. In love with clothing and materials that lived and moved, Marant’s aim is to style real women with real lives. (To that end, she never lets a piece leave her studio without trying it on herself.) A champion of both traditional skills and handmade quality, Marant’s iconic status in the canon of Parisian designers remains unequaled—and irrevocably ingrained in the story of modern fashion.
