Another world by Jitrois ss17
In its Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the maison Jitrois proposes an alternative perspective of beauty for woman expecting for beautiful answers in a challenged society. From a new cultural commitment to a classic savoir-faire, clothes are shaped to be labelled as second skin. Next summer the Jitrois women will be wearing dresses inspired by tattoos. Inverting tattoos into delicate embroideries of suede, leather, organza onto tulle, as if it projects onto the skin. The phoenix appears as a grand monochromatic design embroidered like leather and lace.
Jean Claude used lingerie both incorporated into dresses and separately. The concept for the collection is to reveal the underwear as outerwear, whilst retaining an air of cool and quiet confidence. The Jitrois woman will be wearing the finest suede and leather with a colour palette inspired by floral prettiness yet she is no wilting wallflower. Guy Bourdin encapsulates this women perfectly, dressed in pale pink, holding peonies. Craftsmanship meets the delicacy of the intricate lace embroideries. Sleeves rolled up, or jackets pulled down, Jitrois women’s style is inspired by the eccentricities of the early eighties english society and the postpunk rebellion wave.
Embroideries were also thought as jewellery, Large crosses are encased in leather with crystals and leather covered pearls. Clothes come distressed, smocked and covered in metal studs with references to english post-punk. As an iconic leather lover’s brand, Jean Claude Jitrois offers an elevated vison of an independent, assertive yet mysterious women.
