Jitrois PAP FW2013

May 01, 13 Jitrois PAP FW2013

One of the significant events that took place at the Paris fashion week became the presentation of the new fall-winter 2013/14 collection of “the leather king” Jean-Claude Jitrois, held at the Saint James hotel. This fashion show was notable for being the first show of the famous house in the official calendar.

The interest of mass media in the event was clear: many fashion magazines and TV channels were tirelessly interviewing famous designer. To support maestro came his friends – Sarah Marshall, Marie-Anne Shazel, Sylvie Tellier, Audrey Lamy, Frederick Bell, Anthony Delon, Anna Shcherbinina, and many others.

The new collection of Jitrois is inspired by his childhood memories of the elegant beauties who, arm in arm with their husbands, could have been seen during the festival in Aix-en-Provence. Sophisticated silhouettes, which impeccable architectural structure is expressed in slimming belts and corsets adding certain theatricality to toilets, form the basis of the collection.

The show started with classical models of light tones (beige, pale pink, warm milk), gradually moving to more vivid colors and bold cut. Perfecto, fur collars, the famous leather patch-work leggings, flared skirts in fitted silhouette, fitted overalls – and, finally, a sheer long dress, trimmed with leather fringe…

Jean-Claude Jitrois once again managed to amaze us, playing with leather as if it was a simple tissue, interpreting it in direct graphic forms and in draping, giving it a whole new elegance.

Please note that this article is covering a prêt-à-porter collection.
