Jitrois: skin is a biography

Clashing bold colours with pitch black, ladylike silhouettes with vampish perforated leather, modern flair with a vintage mood…. there’s barely an outfit amoung Jitrois’ spring 2012 collection look book that doesn’t captivate visually.

Jitrois’ designer Jean Claude Jitrois has a fascination with leather, which shows in the look book. Skin – with its textures and scars and imperfections – is equal to a biography, he says. That’s why leather and suede play such a prominent part in all the brand’s collections – including this one.

Beautifully done in both accessories and clothing pieces – though the menswear offering (which you can see as you traverse further along into the look book) doesn’t quite hit the same high note as the women’s – you can view the full collection at the gallery above.
