Isabel Marant, former model, then director over Elite agency, has collaborated, before launching her own lines, with major names in the fashion industry: Michel Klein, Bridget Yorke, Cameron Diaz, Sienna Miller, Rihanna, Michel Perry, and then in 1994, she comes up with her first line, called Twen. Since then, Isabel Marant quickly develops into one fine, refined designer very well aware of what’s hot and what is not.

The Otway ankle boots have become, since last year, one major trend, being also known as the “it” shoes which everyone must have. For $1,295, one can have the same boots as the one spotted on Claudia Schiffer, Linsday Lohan, Raquel Zimmerman, Katy Perry, and many other models. With a limited size of orders and also a prohibited online sale and exposure of her collection, Isabel Marant is nowadays one wanted designer, especially since Rihanna begun wearing her outfits.

Still, a good news might be available for all exclusive Marant buyers, as the designer is about to open the first store in New York and will also sell these boots on

Steve Madden and Jeffrey Campbell decided to make their own (much cheaper) version of the ankle booties.
