Isabel Marant is without a doubt, the originator of French girl cool, and her distinctive style—a little bit bohemian, a little bit streetwise, a little bit undone, and totally free-spirited—has always been my fav.
I have regularly featured Marant in my 15 must-haves in the sale or 5 Things I Want Right Now columns so today I’ve compiled both features to give you 15 Isabel Marant must-haves in the SS18 collection.
How is that for a treat! ;-)
Isabel Marant must-have #1
Easy to wear in Summer, this broderie-anglaise Kery top offers a whimsical take on Isabel Marant’s bohemian aesthetic.
Complete your Summer look with a pair of Hellea slides (see below) and a pair of cotton shorts or these denim cropped jeans by SEA (massive love!)
Isabel Marant must-have #2
At £140, this very sexy one-shoulder Sage swimsuit is the perfect little piece to order right now!
Its simplicity makes it ideal to wear as a base layer during the day but the back will defo turn a few heads by the pool…
Wear it with the Welby cotton dress or these black Lucky high-rise shorts (fab!)
They were styled with a blazer tucked in, on the runaway. However, as the majority of us are not runaway models, I would style them with a cool tee-shirt like this Comme ci Comme ça tee-shirt, Hello Weekend tee or this Keep Rocking tee (my fav because of the graphics and colours).
Isabel Marant must-have #4
These Happy skinny leather trousers made with a slight element of stretch and shaped to sit high on the waist with skinny legs cropped to the calves.
Pair it with this Ramie blouse and these lush Adenn ankle boots.
Isabel Marant must-have #5
No Isabel Marant must-haves would be complete without one of her famous boho long dresses and this Zayla V-neck dress is a little beauty!
Wear it with these pretty leather sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals (see collection below)
Isabel Marant must-have #6
I have a soft spot for this Nasko studded leather shoulder bag which you can carry as a clutch once you detach the strap.
Isabel Marant must-have #7
With a V-neckline that will do wonder for your décolleté, the Wigston cream cotton top will look beautiful with a black cotton skirt during the day (I saw a few nice ones at H&M) and in the evening, change to a pair of straight or tapered trousers like these from Prada.
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE these Stella McCartney lamé tapered pants!
Isabel Marant must-have #8
I’ve mentioned these high-rise shorts a few times above but I think they are perfect for Summer in the city if you’re after a more tailored look.
They come in three colours: cream, black, and khaki. Wear them with a pair of flat sandals during the day and the Dicker ankle boots + a big chunky knit in the evening.
Isabel Marant must-have #9
Tucked into a pair of high-waist denim (Mango has some good ones here), the Nutson embroidered cotton blouse has a timeless, feminine cut and without a doubt, a wardrobe staple. Complete the look with this mini Marcie bag by Chloé or this camel shoulder bag by A.P.C.
Isabel Marant must-have #12
For a casual look, check out this Odilon sweatshirt to wear with denim shorts or skinny jeans.
Isabel Marant must-have #13
I’ve put together a selection of brown shoulder bags under #9 but this Kleny shoulder bag is a fab little number that one cherish for years to come.
Isabel Marant must-have #14
These Hellea quilted leather slides
Isabel Marant must-have #15
Last but not least, the Wensley cotton blouse looks great paired with a pair of denim or culottes. I got a great pair from Muji but H&M has also some great ones like these white denim high-waist ones.
How about you!? If money was no object, which piece(s)would you love to own?
