JARRET F/W 2017

Sophie Shaw, Beauty & Style Editor

Juxtaposing hard metallics with soft furs, the JARRET Fall/Winter 2017 collection, was polished and luxe. Titled “The Purple Cloud,” in reference to the color of royalty and the presence of goddess-like Empresses in the heavens, Ji Youn Lee’s collection was multifaceted and modern.

Colored fur was the main point of interest throughout the collection. A few plush, peach fur coats looked especially luscious, as they complemented the models’ bronze makeup. While there was a plentiful amount of fur, it was not overpowering because it was used as only an accent on many of the pieces.

The silhouettes for the jackets and dresses evoked those of traditional Korean robes. The clean lines worked well for the collection. Because of the use of lurex — a metallic knit — the pieces looked urban rather than antiquated. Metallic embroidery and embellishment on a few black jackets added another touch of tradition.

Fringe also gave texture to the collection. One coordinating top and pant look was covered in short tiers of pink and black fringe that bounced around as the model walked. A velvet coat was scrunched around her midsection to provide another soft texture.

While the collection was eye-catching as a whole, the shoes particularly stood out among the other garments. With chunky metallic heels, leather mules, loafers and boots completed each look. The metallic leather boots were cut asymmetrically so that the shaft of each boot was shorter on the inner side. Architectural and envy-inducing, the footwear helped elevate the collection.
