What happens when Peter Jensen, Shirley Kurata and Autumn de Wilde work together? Magic. That’s what happens. Instead of his usual presentation during NYFW, Jensen decided to release a very inspiring lookbook styled by Kurata and photographed by de Wilde. In my world, this is the Holy Trinity – or something like that.
It is no secret I am a big fan of Jensen’s playful designs but my love for him just went up a notch when I discovered that his Autumn-Winter 2011-12 was inspired by Anna Karina in Godard’s Une Femme est une Femme, which is firmly up there in my top 10 favourite movies. One day I should really share the list with you… Maybe I will do it on Tumblr or something.
The collection focuses on dresses and knitwear and looks back to the past decade’s archives, updating and restyling key pieces. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the brand, which means a website redesign and *roll drums* an online shop – hurray! Also coming up a retrospective book and exhibition… I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about this.
