Standing Out with Étoile Isabel Marant

by Lotus Ladegaard

Originally launched as Twen, the French fashion house Isabel Marant has been around since 90s. In its early beginnings, the brand only featured a line of jersey and knitwear but has since moved on to consist of several lines including Men’s Wear and the more affordable and casual line Etoile. Designer Isabel Marant collaborated with H&M on a collection, which sold out in minutes online and caused the website to crash. Although the French designer has faced many challenges in recent years, she has persevered and continue to create exciting and bold collections.

For Spring 19, Isabel Marant has created an Etoile floral and ruffled collection with adorable and interesting pieces that certainly will appeal to a world of her loyal followers. It is feminine, contemporary and feels fresh and thus will speak to young fashionistas. The collection features a bundle of separates that will easily be adapted into most existing wardrobes. The colour palette was anything but simple, but instead had a little of everything along with many floral prints. The silhouettes were sleek and tailored and offered pieces for most occasions. 

Isabel Marant knows how to make her pieces stand out and offer fashionable alternatives, so it is no surprise that her Etoile Spring 19 collection had it all. Several pieces and looks stood out like the blue shirt almost resembling a vest with red sleeves styled with cut-out trousers, and the pastel dress with ruffled shoulders and slightly puffed sleeves gathered at the waist. Some of the subtler pieces also stood out like the grey blazer styled with a white detailed shirt and cut-out shorts, and the flowy floral dress in dark brown and burnt orange. A few pieces felt somewhat boring and unimportant, however, overall Isabel Marant delivered a beautiful Etoile Spring 19 collection that will excite many.

Isabel Marant knows women want to stand out and dressed in her garments, they are bound to do exactly that in this collection.
