Paris Fall 2015 Couture: Bouchra Jarrar
Bouchra Jarrar, the designer who bases her couture collections around day wear, clearly is starting to stretch in new directions. This is probably at least partly an economical decision. After all, when was the last time you saw a photo of Beyoncé in Bouchra Jarrar? Or Rihanna? These superstar fashionistas probably do wear some of Jarrar’s stuff, but they do it when heading to the office to sit in at board meetings, not the red carpet.
There was quite a bit of that sort of high-end office wear to be sure. But the 1930s clean line designs morphed part way though the presentation into evening, with bias cut silk gowns that recalled the height of the black and white movie era, and looked as if all they were missing with cigarette holders as long as your arm.
No it’s wasn’t a new look, and for some stars, who prefer the half-naked (or near naked) glitter gown, these probably won’t be their first choice of look. But for the starlet looking to go a bit more timeless and do the throwback to the golden era of Hollywood, these would be perfect. Casey Mulligan in Bouchra Jarrar anyone?
