Paris, France – While other houses are all obsessed this season with a formal catwalk show, Jean-Claude Jitrois knows what works best for him. He takes us to his elegant showroom situated in front of the Jardin des Tuileries for the presentation of his exquisite collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
Over the years Jitrois has always been recognized for the sex appeal and the unparalleled craftsmanship of his work. However in recent years he has quickly grown accustomed to other expressions such as “elegance” and “feminine” being associated more and more to his work. This new body of work unites into one collection all these complimenting words. And most deservedly so as the designer would be hard pressed to identify another season in which he seemed so romantically inspired.
Jitrois has brought together a rich armoury of beautiful materials upon which he constructs his new opus: exotic skins, leather, stretch leathers, lingerie lace, embroideries, sheers, etc. They have been employed in the creation of his gowns, sexy and short Party Dresses, pants ensembles, etc. This season he has also decided to add corsets into his work. They serve to really add an element of old world sex appeal into the looks. This works so well with the looks that appeared to have been SCULPTED UPON THE BODY !
With this collection Jean-Claude Jitrois once again shows why he is in a class all of his own. Many houses are famous for their work with leathers or exotic skins. However, none may lay claim to the accolades that Jean-Claude Jitrois has garnered for himself over the years. And this is the reason for which no others may lay claim to his title of being the undisputed king of leather couture.
