One of the highlights of our new items this week is a blue and black Jean Claude Jitrois Leather Jacket from the 80s. The shape is both feminine and architectural with amazing puffed sleeves, that feel so current, and a matching belt that pulls in the waist.
Jean Claude Jitrois is known for his luxury leatherwear and his fashion house was founded in 1976. He has dressed the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Brooke Shields in his sexy, timeless designs. This great history and immaculate quality of his garments explain why his jackets and dresses still retail for thousands of dollars today.
For a great overview of the world of Jitrois and in particular his work with the famous French singer, Dalida please check out the Palais Galliera's (the fashion museum of Paris) French language video of the their special exhibition, where you can see many of his designs and other pieces worn by Dalida, including a leather dress from the same collection as this jacket.
New In: Vintage & Designer Spring Dresses by Chloe, Missoni and Jean Charles de Castelbajac.
We've just listed three great dresses for spring, a romantic choice, a bold piece and a fun dress. Please click on the images to see the products.
Chloé by Karl Lagerfeld
This stunning vintage Chloe silk dress is from the 1970s during Karl Lagerfeld's first tenure as creative director of the label. With the ruffles and lace, this is as relevant for Spring 2019 as it was in the 70s.
This Missoni Spring 2005 dress is a bohemian dream. The lightweight, ombré knit is airy and flattering. The fringing gives a fun, late 1960s hippie inspiration.
You can see the same look in a different colorway on the runway, showing the amazing movement in the video below and on the Fashion Channel's great youtube:
Jean Charles de Castelbajac
This fun Castelbajac vintage sundress is from the 90s in a cool, comfortable cotton knit fabric. It has an amazing Cuban dollar print throughout.
We've also added some great pieces by the iconic Thierry Mugler. They both are effortlessly timeless but with Mugler's distinctive futuristic inspirations, such as pointed collars and slanted pockets. The first, a green men's cotton trenchcoat and the second a smart blazer with a polka dot pattern and is so versatile that would be great in both the office or at a party.
Lastly, we've listed some great Kenzo pieces, all have Kenzo's bold, youthful aesthetic. The first, a floral men's shirt with a classic cutaway collar is great for a party or for wearing in spring and summer. The second is so of its time and yet so current, with the iconic 'Flying Tiger' print that Kenzo have recently reintroduced, this original Kenzo men's cotton blazer is also perfect for spring and summer. The last item we've uploaded is a sharply tailored blazer in a blue wool with great details, like the gold zippers and suede button trim.
