Your one-stop-shop for luxuriously insouciant Parisian chic, Isabel Marant launched her easygoing Étoile diffusion line in 1999. With nonchalance at the core of the brand’s ethos, Isabel Marant Étoile boasts collections of relaxed off-duty fashion with a romantic bohemian edge that quickly become the ultimate cool-girl staples. Their cult ‘Charly’ jacket has a certain “borrowed-from-the-boys” aesthetic. Patterned with heritage checks and cut to a boxy silhouette, it is also super flattering and pretty much goes with everything! We’re struggling for reasons why not to swiftly add this gem to our transeasonal wardrobes immediately! 

Contrary to popular belief, a blazer doesn’t have to be plain to be classic. With a long cut and boxy shape, the ‘Charly’ style is universally flattering and can work equally well worn as a coat as it can a blazer. Simply layer cleverly underneath or highlight its smart tailoring and heritage checks. We recommend layering it over dressy separates - the ‘Charly’ has the ability to play down garments that ordinarily seem over the top if worn alone. Alternatively, you really can’t go wrong with a classic monochrome get-up - high rise black denim and a silk blouse is perfect for nailing that boy-meets-girl aesthetic as intended by the designer.
