With a nod to David Lynch’s iconic lm “Blue Velvet”, Jackie Astier introduces a deep palette of rich tones (orchid, dark rose, violet, brick, caramel, amber, denim, anthracite) combined with masculine details in a collection for Fall 18.
Displaying modern shapes with elevated proportions and an editorial styling sensibility.
Jackie’s conversation with femme meets homme is expressed throughout. Purposeful texture is found in corduroy and tapestry. Substantial orals amplify the expression of color combinations and mood. Plaids are considered with athletic stripes or adorned with owers. Silks and lace are paired with corduroy and leather to break their fragility.
Suits turn up with oversized jackets that drape with comfort but can be belted for silhouette. Velvets are styled together effortlessly offering “le smoking” effect. The collection is empowered with ease and de nition, a sultry, free-spirited interpretation of mystery.
