This summer Isabel Marant enhances the effortless, chic nature of the Etoile line with predominantly oversized and loose fitting styles in the Pre-SS15 Resort Collection. Launched in 2000, the Etoile line is designed to be more comfortable and casual than the Mainline collection, which is exemplified in the relaxed tailoring and graceful touches of this season’s collection. The embroidering of ruffles is once again a season highlight, adding a sweet, feminine touch to an effortless summer look. The Cassy and Caleen dresses, which come in both black and white, add summer lightness to a sophisticated, but comfortable look. The long-sleeved Cadix top, with white-washed ruffles and crochet striped panels, or the short sleeved Dex top, can be easily paired with the Fidji Mini Flip Skirt for a simple and pretty look that compliments the warm weather of the season. Isabel Marant also caters to the sleeveless variety with the feminine Dixie dress in black, which features another season signature of the V-neck. The ‘flip’ style mini skirt is a key underlying theme of the collection. The Derek Frill Mini Skirt in black and white stripes keeps with this season’s theme of minimalistic details, featuring a fitted, elasticised waistband and layered ruffles. It can be paired with the Deep V Kenton Tee Shirt in white or black for a day-to-night summer style. The Resort collection maintains the bohemian inspirations of prior collections with palm and floral prints as featured on the Wilford pants and Wescott tops. Both styles come in both black and white, which caters for both a late summer’s eve dinner or a bright summer morning coffee. The Wilford pants can be paired with the loose and effortless Trey Blouse for a vintage, bohemian style. This season’s collection is great for summer basics that are crucial to any Marant wardrobe. The sleeveless Klint Tee Shirt or the Kid V-Neck Tee Shirt designed in both black and white, coupled with the Newis or Nathael knit on a breezier summer’s day, makes for an easy and distinguished look that embodies the Etoile line. The Resort collection still maintains sophistication in laid back tailoring as exemplified by the textured cotton Jacob Pant, which can be belted around the waist and paired with the Ulia long-sleeved shirt for a composed look that still reflects the summer season. The look can be completed with the Glenn Jacket, light and perfect for a summer’s night or day. A unique inclusion of the Resort collection is the oriental inspired Hanoi top, which partners with the Harper skirt to create a loose-fitting, stylish and standout Isabel Marant outfit. Both pieces feature fringed hems, with the skirt being consistent to the large waistband and ruffled theme of the collection, making it a suitable match to other Isabel Marant Etoile tops in the Resort collection. An Isabel Marant collection would not be complete however, without the statement evening piece. The Resort collection features the stunning Faith dress in Bordeaux, which features a deep V neckline and backline and flows loosely from the waist. This piece embodies the classic French glamour that is reflected by Isabel Marant and her outstanding designs.
