Jibri Fall/Winter '09



Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending The Art of Fashion in New York, an event that featured Jibri's Fall/Winter '09 Collection. Using mostly muted tones like grey and plum, the line was completely cohesive with Jibri's usual structural aesthetic (high collars, ruffles, etc). I wish the hemlines were a tad shorter (surprise, surprise), but overall I'm digging it. Check it out and let me know what you think:

  4. Yes, I could deal with the hemlines being 3 to 4 inches shorter, but I suppose that isn't a hard fix. I am really digging the sleeveless with the high collar, although these styles won't be easy to rock unless you have a closecut hairstyle or will be wearing an updo.

  5. I love, love, love the clothes, but I was REALLY freaked out when I visited their website.

    The fashion story-board about a desperate housewife who kills her husband while looking terribly stylish and calm was just a bit too out there for me.

    But, that's just my opinion, and it shouldn't detract from how fabulous those grey dresses are.

  7. I'm loving the collection, especially the plum peplum skirt. I do agree with you the hemlines though, shorter would be cuter, but I know everyone isn't into that.

    Sidebar: I got the letter earlier this week. Thanks peach!
