Will we ever see the end of the 80s French cool girl? The one with the big shoulders, leather jackets, high-waisted denim jeans, and big boots? Probably not! Designers these days are still enchanted with such a look, and women are just chewing it all up as well! But it pays to have that look modernized to keep it fresh and updated. Enter Laurent and Arik Bitton of Iro! In their Fall 2019 collection, they reworked the classic style and made it a contemporary look for today’s cool girls! The shapes are a lot more defined, the pieces hold much more structure, and the textiles are much finer than before. There’s also a nonchalant sex appeal going on that’s endlessly alluring. A leather pantsuit nipped at the waist evoked a sort of androgynous edge that was scintillating enough on its own. While a graphic floral printed frock—mini, of course!—brought on a sexy glamour without a hint fo vulgarity! If women of any age want to look cool, this is the line to buy into come fall!
