The other week I was introduced to the Jenny Han collection. The collection was launched in 2004 in Los Angeles and has quietly and steadily grown into a silent giant. While I haven’t heard of the brand before, the clothes themselves spoke clearly to me in their luxe fabrications, elegance and a very charming lady-like sophistication. The clothes have very winning quality to them. Maybe it’s the thoughtful details or maybe it’s the way that each piece looks so universally easy to wear and flattering?
This season was all about the combination of nostalgia with classic silhouettes to create a look that is inspired by 70s personalities like Julianne Moore’s madam in Boogie Nights and Mary Tyler Moore. I love that the designer intended this woman to be quirky, smart, multi-dimensional and a woman’s kind of sexy (not necessarily a man’s). At the end of the day women do dress for other women and it’s the designer’s keen understanding of the heart of a woman that would inspire her in this way. Boucle, velvet and chunky knits are contrasted with delicate chiffon, feminine ruffles and shine to create textural interest.
My fave pieces were the super chunky cardigan, shimmering sequin mini and the boucle knit mini skirt. Check out the lookbook below to see how the clothes work on a person.
