Pre-AW15’s Isabel Marant Etoile collection is inspired by style icon Edie Sedgwick and features light dresses, crops and knits, keeping in tone with the casual yet sophisticated, comfortable elegance of the Etoile line. Isabel Marant is a favourite of prominent fashion editorials such as Marie Claire Magazine, US Vogue and Elle Magazine, for the label’s ability to reflect relaxed and effortless high-fashion style that caters to every woman’s taste and needs. French designer Isabel Marant creatively infuses sporty and luxe through the straight leg Iken Pants in black, as seen on Sienna Miller and Kate Bosworth. When paired with the Lazuli Sleeveless Turtle Neck knit, in the signature colours of black, grey or ecru, the combination makes for an effortlessly sophisticated and practical autumn’s day outfit. Isabel Marant certainly does not deter from her love of knits in this collection as exemplified by the prominence of varied knitted styles that are suited for a variety of autumn occasions. The Newlyn Knit top features a cable knitted design and has a ribbed finish around the cuffs and hemlines. With a cropped fit and round neckline, the Newlyn Knit is the must-have winter piece that exudes seasonal style and casual sophistication. Coming in classic colours of ecru, mint and bordeaux. Fitted silhouettes in a knitted variety also feature this season as demonstrated by the Joshua long-sleeved top in black or ecru. This top can be used as a layer underneath a Lazuli Knit or Wad Dress in black or anthracite, but can also be paired with the Lyle ¾ Knit skirt in black, grey or ecru for a simple yet elegant outfit. For a more loosely fitted knitted option, there is the Kerstin knit in black or grey, with a round neck and ribbed cuffs and hem, that can be paired with the Lyneth Mini Wrap Skirt in black, grey or ecru – perfect for any autumn’s night or daytime occasion. The Kini long-sleeved cropped knit top in black or grey is a staple winter piece that emphasises the design and style influences of Edie Sedgwick, while the cropped length highlights modern sophistication and trend. To emphasise effortless dressing this season, there is the short-sleeved Letty Knit Dress in black, grey and ecru. Linen simplicity, a common theme in any Etoile collection, is also represented by the Karon long-sleeved linen tee and Ken short-sleeved linen tee, both in white/blue, that can be paired with the Kanuka drop crotch stovepipe pants in black for an off-duty model, street style look, as seen on Lou Dillon. Returning to lightly fitted, relaxed silhouettes is the stretch wool jersey story in black and anthracite. The Wenji sleeveless stretch wool jersey t-shirt features a V-neck and can be paired with the pencil style knee length Wills skirt for a simple yet statement autumn outfit. Alternatively there is a mini skirt option available in the Wonki skirt which suits anyone with long lean legs. Although simplistic and comfortable in design, an Etoile collection is never void of embellishment. This season’s embroidered story features signature Isabel Marant patterning in new and varied methods, which adds a feminine touch to the neutral black and white colour tones.  The short-sleeved Amel Dress, features ties at the sleeves with embroidered shoulders and a ruched hem. Alternatively, the Aude dress features a ¾ sleeved embroidered piece that makes for a perfect sunnier autumn’s day outfit. For a colder day, there is a long-sleeved option in the Auxane Dress, emphasising Isabel Marant’s intention for practicality in her stories by providing design options that cater to any occasion, climate and personal style. The embroidered story also encorporates in tops with the Axel Top being a ¾ sleeve option coming in the colour waves of black, white and mint. The Audrina Top, also in black, white and mint, features ties at the sleeves as well as embroidery at the shoulder for added embellishment. The Arielle skirt in black, white or mint, is a familiar piece of an Etoile collection, featuring a short length and ruched waistband. The skirt can be paired with the Ferone printed long sleeve top in faded black or ecru for a unique, statement, effortless look. An Etoile collection would be incomplete without a nature inspired burst and a statement combination of elegance. The Sorley Top and the Sevan Skirt in faded black are this season’s oriental standouts featuring a Slavic floral print that is perfectly suited to the winter season. The Amery skirt is the pinnacle of subtle elegance in its long, flowing length and handkerchief hem design. Featuring in colours of mint, black and white, the Amery skirt can be paired with the Noella long-sleeved cropped shirt with pleats in white, black or antique pink. A point of difference in Pre-AW15 Isabel Marant Etoile is the silk lingerie story. The Victoria Chemise in black and light pink is an exciting and enticing element of this season that demonstrates that nothing is too predictable in an Isabel Marant Etoile collection.
