CONFESSIONS OF A MARANTAHOLIC

Saturday, 28 July 2012















My name is Natalie and I am a Marantaholic. My latest obsession? The Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers. I'd always preferred the Willows/Bekkets over the Bettys/Bobbys but out of nowhere, I started pining for them. I've already worn my Willows to death and desperately wanted a black pair of Marant sneakers for autumn/winter. The Bobbys seemed the practical choice - they're a little wider than the Willows and the wedge is a bit smaller, plus I wear black A LOT. OK, there are my lame justifications out of the way...


Anyway, all you need to know is that I wandered into Start London in Shoreditch on my lunch break, my attention captured by the Marant cork wedges (which were down to an incredible £115 if you're around the area). Alas, cankles + flatforms are not a match made in heaven. And then I saw BOBBY. We've been together ever since. This was the last pair of black Bobbys in FR39 in the store, but I think NET-A-PORTER are getting these in, so stay tuned. Oh, and Start had a few pairs of the tan Bobbys in.


Turns out my Marant addiction is nothing compared to that of a woman who stopped me on Great Titchfield Street a couple of days ago, desperate to get her hands on Bobby too. She's on her FOURTEENTH pair of Marant sneakers...
