... how lovely: French fashion darling Isabel Marant, who I recently met backstage before her f/w 10 fashion show in Paris (while she was getting her nails done...), now opens her first flagship store in New York City.

The very intimate and personal Marant-teasers that were put in the windows of her shop-to-be all feature a charming and totally unpretentious character called Mr. Hatman ...

... who seems to be particularly dear to Isabel. Nice outside views of Isbel's NYC shop (469 Broome, Green Corner, Soho) as it was about to take shape can be found on The Shophound, btw.

You know who Mr. Hatman reminds me of? Roger Hargreaves' children's books, you know, Little Miss Sunshine and her bunch of friends. Maybe that's one of the sources of Isabel's creative spirit?

two looks from Isabel's spring 2010 collection, totally not Little Miss Sunshine, via style.com

Hard to believe though, given the Rock chick with a French chic twist allure she usually evokes in her collections - but you know, from input to output, a lot of things can happen...
