Isabel Marant Étoile / AW21
The key to the new Étoile collection this season is an eclectic mix of sportswear (hello lockdown), new technical fabrics (welcome to the future) and seasonless basics (buy less, buy better).
Petrol, saffron, bordeaux – the sporty basics come in muted noble colors, which allows for versatile closet combinations. Dynamism and momentum brings the racetrack retro appeal to the parts. Everything only hinted at, everything subtle – and still adult.
Sporty & Eighties vibes in the mix. The focus of a successful look à la Marant is the styling interplay of bag and shoe. Here the upper principle applies: What does not seem to fit together at first moment, wins! For example, noble high heels made of soft, matte suede to coated, shiny patent leather.
This bold mix is carried by valuable classics and the best basics. These include oversized coats, high-waisted flannel pants, two-piece suits, plaid and pinstripe blouses, and luxe biker jackets. These investments form the basis of a seasonless, long-lasting wardrobe.
