“I always start with asking myself, who is the woman?” and luckily for us, JM’s SS13 collection has been inspired by Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, so it would be safe to think of Aladdin’s Jasmine, in an Arabian mystery drama. Each divinely detailed piece is named after an exotic destination, adhering to the tag line of the collection; “Island Life”. Obviously it would be totally rude not to take our dresses to the exact island it’s named after, so pack your cases. It’s destination Aruba!
With this collection, the more I lust, the more I want. Julien has added his own personal perspective of elegant into this line, by ensuring that complete attention to minor detail is imperative. (No wonder he’s previously won “British fashion designer of the year”). Each of the pieces ooze a certain va-va-voom. With jewel’s so shiny they could blind you, sequined sheath’s, fringe and spikes, there is something for every woman, for every occasion, or, just to add to your on-going collection that’s keeping your other half out of retirement.
I can’t promise world peace, but I can promise you that all heads will be turned if you’re supporting one of the thigh high slitted dresses. Nothing screams ‘Yes, I am independent, but, also very… sexy’ better than a full length dress with a sneaky, thigh slit. JM has also ditched the accessories, and welcomed embellished necklines and shimmery bead work into the line. This is more than just sequins, this is soft, embellished, glistening jewels, that’ll make your butterflies tingle.
Spring/Summer 13 is giving you the chance to show off those beautifully toned shoulders in a tiny halter. Sizzle on down that beach in a flaming, red-yellow toned chiffon mini. Or even better, in a cut out swimsuit, perfect for showing off that side curve.
If cut outs aren’t for you, feast your eyes on the cream, wrap swimsuit with a flattering plunge neckline. This particular swimsuit is just screaming...”Get me on a plane to Dubai”. We have also seen a total tribal re-vamp on some of the shorter pieces, its all fiercely, flipping, fringetastic!
Fringed halters in red and purple, all over cut outs in green and nude, floaty tassels, head-to-toe chiffon, spiky embellishments, flowing slits, blinding jewels, sequins, and beady bead work have all clambered together to create a huge ball of complete and utter wowza! Let me tell you, the JM SS13 collection is one not to be missed. Once again, excelling in evening wear, the Saville Row studio is bursting with nothing less than class.
