Bouchra Jarrar

Those who are familiar with French designer Bouchra Jarrar know that she’s an expert in Parisian tailoring: somewhat strict, seriously streamlined, and with that effortless nonchalance that makes heads turn. For her couture show, showcased in the City Hall of Paris’ 4th arrondissement and to the voiceover of a French girl babbling about how literature let her down, Jarrar showcased a collection built on the Sergeant Pepper peacoat—an outerwear characterized by its gold brocade. The large lapelled looks came across as slightly costumish—especially considering that Jarrar paired her coats with woolen smoking trousers and clunky boots (which we imagine the Parisians will be tripping over themselves to buy). Her outerwear prowess revealed itself when she thought out of the box and deconstructed her coats by meshing together various materials; the sleeveless jacket in metallic silk jacquard with blue velvet lapels and the XL vest with curly lambswool were utterly luxurious.
