Marant was free to explore what interests her most, namely the intersection of bohemian cool and feminine elegance.

For the first time ever, Isabel Marant forged her collection without a backing theme, but that proved to be a benefit for her Spring/Summer 2017 presentation. By not restricting herself to a certain era, icon, or location, Marant was free to explore what interests her most, namely the intersection of bohemian cool and feminine elegance. Her fresh-faced models wore modernized peasant blouses, floral hot pants, athletic outerwear, and gorgeous linen trousers, cementing her message of “everyday femininity”.

Marant’s central thesis was flattery of the female form.

Marant’s central thesis was flattery of the female form, which meant a cinched-waist silhouette that was supported by wide leather belts, corset bodices, patterned sashes, and high-waisted trousers with multi-buckle accents. Although the waist was narrow, Marant focused volumes on sleeves, which came in puff-sleeve and ruffled varieties. Sans theme, the clothes offered a range of options from delicately patterned floral dresses, single-sleeved blouses, and gypsy tops to stiff denim jumpsuits and sporty cover-ups. Her Spring/Summer 2017 collection was lovely, accessible, and effortlessly chic, descriptors that all happen to be part of Marant’s signature aesthetic.
