‘Sportswear meets rock and roll with plenty of Parisian flair’ is the perfect way to sum up Isabel Marant’s Spring 2012 collection.

On a colour palette of red, dark pink, lemon, sky blue, orange, purple and black, leggy supermodels took to the runway wearing American-football-inspired tops with slouchy sweat pants, denim jeans or shorts with a patchwork or tie-dye treatment.

Whilst feeling for the models in the hot venue, I did love the chunky knits. They were presented as oversized grandpa cardigans, racerback dresses, long-sleeve dresses with hoodies, and classic cable knit sweaters. These pieces are perfect for keeping you warm on those mid-summer nights when the temperatures drop.

We also saw tie-dye jumpsuits, oversized shirts, tie-dye mini dresses, lurex mini dresses, rompers, cropped textured pants, oversized jackets and slouchy tie-dye pants. The crochet dresses and tops would make for perfect beach cover-ups.

There was a selection of Rajasthani embroideries pieces which included vests and mini dresses; they added something exotic to this free-spirited collection.

Models walked the runway in sexy ankle chain strappy sandals, which will be snapped up by many celebrities next season.
