If you’re a businesswoman who follows the latest catwalk-inspired trends, odds on you spotted Isabel Marant’s “Basile” top on her Fall 2017 runway. Among her many stunning designs, the Basile top really wowed the crowds! The standout piece was worn by Gigi Hadid on the catwalk, but you don’t need to be a leggy supermodel for this top to look spectacular. With the Christmas season approaching, it’s the perfect time to get your hands on the Basile top.
The Basile embellished top certainly looks special from afar, but up close it’s even more impressive. The tulle fabric is bejewelled with hundreds of hand-sewn silver sequins, so this top takes a staggering 130 hours to make!

The shimmery sequins makes this top perfect for Christmas parties and winter nights out. With a button-fastened keyhole at the front, the top can also be worn back to front as it was on the runway, making it versatile too! The ruffled, tiered, flared sleeves and flounced trim add a feminine, regal feel—reminiscent of the days of old. In fact, ‘Basile’ means ‘Royal’ in Greek, which sums up this top perfectly.
