Are You Ready For This? J Brand Launches RTW (And We Want All Of It)
February 13, 2012
J Brand‘s ready-to-wear line is simplicity at its finest. Luxe materials, clean shapes, and an almost-entirely neutral color palette make this, the brand’s first foray outside of their native denim genre, a great lesson in wearability and seasonless elegance. The entire collection is based on design director Donald Oliver’s aesthetic of mixed textures and materials: “I love the contrasts of hard with soft, structured with relaxed, leather with silk and soft satins,” said Oliver.
Some of our favorite items include the Moyet Sweater ($700), a chunky knit that would serve well as a winter-to-spring transition piece, and the Monae Shirt ($345), which comes in grey or the most perfect shade of amethyst (one of the few colored items in the collection).
