This season Isabel Marant heavily incorporates the Broderie Anglaise embroidery style that utilises a whitework needlework technique to create eyelet like patterning. Broderie Anglaise alludes a feminine and composed look that is ideal for the transitional season. The Varden shirt is a fully embroidered long sleeved shirt that is heavily Asian influenced and comes in colour waves of black and white. It is an easy basic that adds unique style to any casual outfit. The Vlady Top features short, flared sleeves and is also fully embroidered. The Vlady Top, a favourite of Miranda Kerr and Emma Watson, can be easily styled to adapt to formal or casual occasions and is a sophisticated and modern take on the classic Broderie Anglaise technique. The Volta Skirt is the pinnacle representation of classical French femininity. Fully embroidered in eyelet detailing, it flows to knee length and features an uneven hemline to emphasise prettiness and elegance. The Volta skirt has been prominently featured in Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire for its unique design and classic style and comes in black and white. The Velke Dress is the counterpart to the Vlady Top. It is a straight dress with flared short sleeves and is the effortless spring/summer outfit for a smart casual occasion. The Velke dress also comes in the staple colours of black and white. For an even more elegant option, there is the Val Dress. The Val Dress features a fully embroidered eyelet design with an asymmetrical hemline, v-neck and flared sleeves. The dress is a stunning and statement piece that uniquely utilises Broderie Anglaise for the purpose of an element of glamour. Lastly, the statement piece of the season – the burgundy Allen Top, is an Asian influenced boxy top with short sleeves and features an intricately embroidered pattern, cap sleeves and shoulder tassle ties to emphasise its contextual design.
