Jean-Pierre Braganza // Fall 2015 //

Jean-Pierre Braganza had members of manufactured British pop group, Little Mix, front row at his show on the first day of London Fashion Week. Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall both wore JPB for the show. With a recently announced collaboration with British high street behemoth River Island, the girl group will no doubt be wearing the cool clothes. Many people, in fact will be able to own a piece of Jean-Pierre as his designer wares exceed some peoples budgets. 

I personally thought this was Jean-Pierre’s most luxurious collection to date. A modern incarnation of a film noir vixen and wartime heroine was the woman on JPB’s mind. Also the symmetry of fighter jets came to his mind. This wartime heroine and film noir vixen on his mind was a glamourous woman. She wore architecturally sculptured outfits - a signature of his, draped dresses and coats and prints. All three of those elements were all signatures of Jean-Pierre’s. How was it different to spring though? The colours for one. Richer hues excited. Less prints were used which allowed him to focus his attention to bettering his shapes. 
A large fur bomber jacket worn over a liquid latex-esque cowl neck gown with a huge choker was a highlight in the collection. The red carpet ready presentation showed us some symmetric origami shapes which related back to the fighter jet idea. A forest green with a jewel embellished collar was a gorgeous display. The finale look was to die for. A V-neck teal floor sweeping gown featured a draped bodice and a cinched waist. Two black cuffs, also playing on the idea of symmetrical looks. An up-do made the look appear as if it was ready to glide down the red carpet at the Oscars. 

The latest offering from Jean-Pierre Braganza is further proving my idea of London Fashion Week this season. It is the best one yet. JPB improved upon his previous collection and this is a feat that all designers to achieve.
