Isabel Marant

UPDATE: This post has been updated on April 17, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’m pretty sure by now you’ve all seen and and learned about Isabel Marant‘s “Carol” studded sandal since it was quite the “It” shoe among the style bloggers last year. But did you know “Carol” had a little brother named “Cole”? It’s a cute flat stud-embellished sandal, very similar looking to his big sister but with no block heel attached. I especially love the white version here. But $640? Um, thank you, but no, thank you.

Matisse “Isla” Stud Embellished Flat Sandals

If you like the Marant look, but can’t afford the original, here’s an inspired version by Matisse. The sandals don’t come in the exact same colors and have a few minor design differences, but the overall look and feel is still very Marant-ish. Get these for $89 in either black or natural leather.

We have already written multiple times about how Isabel Marant‘s footwear creations always seem to create a massive hype around them. Whatever the French designer brings out on the market is almost instantly set to be a guaranteed success. First, we had the “Bekket” hidden wedge sneaker and the “Dicker” boot and now “Carol”, a crystal-embellished leather cuff sandal with a stacked wooden heel, is well on its way to becoming the “It“-shoe of the season. Much like everyone else, I absolutely adore this boho-chic summer sandal, but there’s no way I could justify that enormous $1.035 price tag that comes along with it.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lakota” Studded Cuff Sandals

Vahni, one of our former guest bloggers here at ITC, has recently blogged about how she (and the rest of the fashion world, for that matter) is totally insane for Isabel at the moment; and for the above pictured “Carol” Sandal in particular. Luckily, just a few days before I happened to stumble upon Jeffrey Campbell‘s “Lakota” Sandal which as you can easily see below is heavily inspired by Madame Marant’s studded creation. I happily passed on the tip to Vahni and she ordered them within a heartbeat. You can see how Vahni rocks her new JCs on her Instagram (absolutely love how V paired them with white denim). Since I am quite positive that these shoes, which retail for $178 (approx. 1/5 of the original’s price) and are available in either black or white, are probably going to sell out very quickly soon, you better hurry up to order these JCs if you’re, too, like Vahni are insane for Isabel.

I know we’re a galaxy away from summer yet, so it might not be the best time to write about summery gladiator sandals in the middle of winter, but when this very sandal has been designed by la Grande Dame of French fashion, Madame Isabel Marant, you kind of have no choice but to post it. We had quite a few reader requests for the studded Lester strappy block heel sandal below and it took us a while to come up with a few budget-frienldy alternatives, but finally, here they are…

Mollini “Jalis” Studded Sandals

First up is this studded sandal by Mollini. It’s not an identical look-a-like, but similar enough to be mistaken for Marant, I think. Plus, it’s on sale and available in black, too!

Dolce Vita “Jerica” Studded Gladiator Sandals

Another alternative are these gladiator sandals by Dolce Vita. I wouldn’t consider them a dupe, but they do have a very similar look to the Marant shoes, wouldn’t you agree? Also available in other colors.

Sam Edelman “Dion” Stud Sandals

This one by Sam Edelman is also more of an inspired-by option rather than a full-blown knockoff. But the look and feel reminds me of the Marant sandal above, so I decided to include it in the list.

Even though I am not very partial to Birkenstock shoes, I know Céline made them “très cool” last year. And this year, we have Isabel Marant strengthening their coolness factor even further by adding a cute studded bow on top and giving those bland Birkenstocks her typical boho touch which we’ve seen in previous of Marant’s collections. Well, I have to admit I kinda like these summer sandals here and I bet these suckers are super comfortable to wear!

So you can’t afford to spend $600 on the originals yet these shoes just won’t go out of your head? Well then take a look at this Jessica Buurman sandal which is quite obviously inspired by Marant’s “Edris” sandal above. It’s not a perfect dupe and you obviously won’t get the same quality, but it’s $450 cheaper, so that’s that.

Kitten heels and pointed toes are usually NOT what turns me on about a shoe, but strange enough I think it totally works on these red suede kitten pumps by Isabel Marant. Maybe it’s the lavishly tied bow or the red suede or maybe that they look so French. But I do like these. A lot. Others, including a flood of Hollywood celebs, seem to favor these heels as well since the Poppy pumps have sold out rather quickly online. I especially like how Hilary Duff wore these with a grey tank and rolled up skinny jeans.
