Runway Report: Isabel Marant SS17

There was an amalgamation of sentiments at Isabel Marant SS 2017 presentation in Paris this week.  The definitive authority on Parisian chic, Marant has decided that SS 2017 will be the season of the dress and that movement and easy of care are equally as important as trend.

As for her view on trends of the season, she went with everyday femininity – and brought back last season’s shiny silver fabrics, exaggerated ruffles on billowing sleeve shirts, high wasted man trousers, and sporty, utilitarian, and ambiguously rebellious dress silhouettes.  Marant is most certainly speaking to a workingwoman, one who is on the move whether biking over to her Pilates class in between meetings, or in transit and on the way to a dinner date, or even hopping onto her Vespa to get to an after work screening. Movement, comfort, ease-of-care, yet impeccable styling – all seemed equally regarded at Marant’s SS 2017 presentation.
