I love Jean-Pierre Braganza. He seems to always find the right balance between classic, everyday clothes and edgy designs. His SS12 collection “Praxis” is of course no exception to that rule. Classic trouser-suits and well cut shift dresses alternate with more intricate – and perhaps also a little more more youthful – evening wear.
“Women are the sculptures of nature, and it is a gift to adorn them with my clothes. Dresses caress and jackets compliment, never overshadowing the original form” – Braganza says. And for once, I don’t raise my eyebrows in disbelief. Yes, he does create clothes that will look good on anyone. From the choice of fabrics to the prints and cut-outs, his designs are made to celebrate women – all women, not force them into an unrealistic and unachievable aesthetic mould.
