Isabel Marant wins Contemporary Designer Of The Year

At the ELLE Style Awards

Isabel Marant – the designer praised with spearheading the pretty hippy posse – scooped the award for Contemporary Designer Of The Year at the ELLE Style Awards.

The award was presented by model and Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko.

Through her signature trophy jackets, delicate knits and painted-on cross-stitched leathers, Marant has cornered the market in effortless cool.

With a H&M collaboration under her rhinestone-embellished belt, Marant finally made her feverishly coveted tough-yet-romantic style accessible to all her admirers last year.

‘She's brought that insouciant French look to the UK and her casual, bohemian style is not just a firm favourite amongst fashion circles, but has also been incredibly successful in the UK, shaping British high-street style,’ says ELLE’s Executive Fashion and Beauty Editor Kirsty Dale.
