Anais Jourden Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
If you think lace separates and tweed suits are so old-school, think again. Anaïs Jourden's Fall 2019 collection played with such French style staples and reinterpreted them with a little more sex and a touch of jovial youth. Though the results were a bit too referential to more established labels, it did, however, play with Parisienne fancies that most fashion-lovers will surrender to.

If you ever wanted to see what more sexed-up versions of Chanel and Tory Burch look like, look no further than Anaïs Jourden‘s latest collection. This isn’t to say that the line was bad (though the references were a little too obvious for our taste). On the contrary, their Fall 2019 show was perhaps one of the brand’s most pleasant to date. Whatever Anaïs Mak attempted to spin with such classics, she did so in her own unique way and with a lot more youthful edge. Take the Chanel-esque jackets, for instance, which were constructed in sleeker silhouettes and with starker contrasts. Paired with lacey leggings or matching hotpants, you wouldn’t remember that these used to be the luxurious uniforms of our grandmothers. The lace-ed up separates were perhaps the most scintillating, covering up the female form in such lady-like iterations only to slightly bare them through their semi-sheerness. It’s that classically subversive and sensual touch that French style is beloved for, just made a lot more contemporary. Still, we can’t deny there was a lot of misses—unflattering cocktail frocks, misplaced ruffles, and carpet-looking fur coats (made with real animal skins), to name a few. But they didn’t bring down what ultimately was a beautiful collection.
