It’s in the brand’s very DNA: leather has been the signature excellence, savoir-faire and style since the house’s inception. An alternative perspective on the stretch leather that the house works with was presented by Jitrois for Spring/Summer 2017. Venturing away from the weighty idea of leather, Jitrois experimented with textures and treatments: leather, suede, organza and other materials were delicately embroidered with tattoo-inspired materials, further reinforcing the idea of garments as an extra skin.
Lingerie, incorporated in dresses and as separates, played with layering – mixing outer with inner wear – and adding a punk tone to the whole collection. Blues, yellows, and reds in suede and leather presented a colour palette that conjured up images of English Roses. True to the image of the image of a British waif, an additional post-punk detail meant that pieces were covered in metal studs or embellished with beautiful lace and metal detailing, always with a sylphlike quality. More than a rebel without a cause, this was a woman who could subvert, reinvent and re-fashion any traditions of beauty. Bring out your inner rebel Rose in style next season with Jitrois – just make sure you do so in leather.
