Isabel Marant utilises stripes and ruffles this season to create and enhance her summer story and to emphasise the casual ease and sophistication of the Etoile line. The highly-coveted Jacob pants now feature in a burgundy/black stripe and red/blue stripe colour wave to enhance the colours of the season and add variety to the traditional Jacob Pant, enabling them to be statement rather than accompanying pieces. The burgundy/black stripes and the red/blue stripes also feature in the shorts counterpart – the Jaya shorts, displaying Isabel Marant’s ability to adapt her patterning to multiple designs in one collection. The Ulia shirt in slate blue or brick, is a basic striped long sleeved shirt, that is a perfect piece for a work outfit, with the stripes adding a stylish embellishment while keeping the design simple and sophisticated. The tribal and tropical influence of Isabel Marant’s Summer collection this season is portrayed by the use of ruffles. The oversized Cassy dress features crochet striped panels and long sleeves with little ruffles at the neckline, hemline and sleeves. The Caleen dress is a short-sleeved counterpart and is the pinnacle of effortless dressing – the key intention of the Isabel Marant Etoile line. The Caleen dress, also in black and white, is an easy outfit that eludes class, sophistication and style with the addition of youthful femininity. The long sleeved Cadix top in black and white, is the go-to basic of the transitional season. The ruffles portray lightness and prettiness while the design complements the attributes of high-fashion elegance and sophistication. The Clara top is a sleeveless alternative, also featuring ruffles on the sleeves, hem and chest. The Clara Top, in black or white, can be paired with the mini-length Connie skirt, which features a large elasticised waist and layered ruffles at the hem, for a feminine and elegant look. The statement pieces of the Etoile collection are the Damia short sleeved ruched mini dress featuring layered ruffles at the hem, and its counterpart – the Dao top. Both pieces feature statement black and white printing and are the perfect choices for night time social occasions during changing seasons.
