12 Inescapable And Fabulous Trends Isabel Marant Helped Popularize

The French designer (and girl crush of every woman working in fashion) just announced she’s creating a line for H&M. Really, she’s been starting mass market since she founded her label in 1994.

1. Marant is most widely known for her wedge sneakers.

The shoes retail for around $640.

Tons of celebrities have been spotted wearing them.

Miranda Kerr and Pink are just two, but hordes of other celebs wear them constantly before paparazzi.

Knock-offs have popped up in tons of stores.

Ash Shoes sells a version for $235.
