The Italist Edit: Isabel Marant Étoile SS18

Parisian elegance with a bohemian flair, Isabel Marant Étoile is the beloved younger sister of French fashion house Isabel Marant. The brand was launched in 1999 following the success of the main brand. Marant is distinguished for her Parisian attitude to silhouette and laid back aesthetic. In an interview with Fashionista in 2012, she captured the idea of dressing as an everyday woman, “I’m like every woman, so I try to work on how to look slimmer or how to look taller but not be overdressed. I think most of the time when you dress in the morning, you go toward something that’s very pretty, but at the end you say, ‘Ah, no, I’m having a hard day, I need to have something easy that I’m not afraid to break.’ It’s a balance of fashion and a way of life.” Luckily for us, her line Isabel Marant Étoile encapsulates that effortless, nonchalant attitude fused with the spirit of French classiness.  This season’s collection is the ultimate must-haves for a cool-girl’s wardrobe. It’s a beautiful blend of African-inspired prints with Parisian sophistication visible on each piece.  Isabel Marant Étoile’s SS18 Lookbook Shop the pieces on italist    Look 1: Dress  Look 2: Sweater / Pants / Coat   Look 3: Shorts Look 4: Dress   Look 5: Top / Skirt Look 6: Pants   Discover Isabel Marant Étoile on...
