Isabel Marant Etoile SS'19

I think it's wonderful that some high end designers offer diffusion lines so that fashionistas can still have the opportunity to wear their clothes without the hefty price tag. The likes of Missoni have a diffusion line with their label, M Missoni, Chloe has their diffusion label, See by Chloe and French designer Isabel Marant has her diffusion line, Isabel Marant Etoile. 

Isabel Marant loves dressing women for every day. This is what I love about the Etoile label, the fact I can slip on an item and wear it running errands and feel so french chic and oh so feminine! That's how I feel about her Etoile line, Each piece is so wearable. From floral dresses and skirts to soft breezy fabrics, sweatshirts and casual pants, Isabel Marant Etoile is both feminine and chic. 

I pretty much have everything in the  Spring/Summer 2019 Isabel Marant Etoile collection on my Wish List! One of each please! Merci!

Have a great week ahead.

Yours in style,

My Oroton handbags and the purse I still use every day, have definitely stood the test of time. The quality of manufacturing is undeniably second to none.

Did you know that Oroton are celebrating 80 years this year? That's pretty amazing since back in 2017, Oroton went into voluntary administration. I was worried the company was going to join the long list of Australian designers who have not managed to stay afloat. Thankfully in late 2017, Caledonia Funds Management chief investment officer, Will Vicars, purchased the brand from the administrator. Will Vicars had already a small portion of shares in the company.
