Jitrois Spring – Designer Jean Claude Jitrois took a visit to this year’s summer exhibition at Paris’ Grand Palais for inspiration for Jitrois’ spring-summer 2014 collection. Much of the new season focuses on creating leather looks with an ease of movement. Sportswear elements like vibrant colors and a simple track pant add a sense of relaxation to spring. Jitrois also highlights separates with embellished jackets as well as soft draping and streamlined dresses.
Modern Medieval – Reflecting the collection’s medieval inspiration, Jitrois enlists photographer Rankin for its spring 2013 campaign with a series of images photographed in the the Freemason’s Hall of Covent Garden. Styled by Katie Shillingford, models Santa Urbane, Renee van Seggern, Tuuli Shipster and Luka are an ethereal vision in form-fitting shapes and exotic skins.
Medieval Tales – For spring 2013, Jitrois designer Jean-Claude Jitrois was inspired by the stained-glass windows and architecture of medieval churches. The influence can be seen in leather panels and bands, positioned to form geometric lines much like the artwork stained glass. Although inspired by centuries past, the season is thoroughly modern with couture shapes, crystal embellishments and the juxtaposition of leather and exotic furs.
French Summer – French luxury label Jitrois draws on a range of influences for its spring-summer collection, finding inspiration ranging from the French Riviera to Mediterranean style. Designer Jean-Claude Jitrois plays on color and form for the season, offering body conscious silhouettes and a myriad of hues including fiery red, marmalade, royal blue and forest green. Styled by Katie Shillingford, models Elin and Sophie don seventies influenced cocktail wear with a hint of modern edge in the form of leather jackets and skirts. Lace, chiffon, mesh and Swaroski crystals are all luxe materials used for the evening-wear section which showcases Jitrois’ own take on the little black dress.
