I love the playfulness in this collection, clashing prints aren’t over exaggerated and the silhouettes are flattering and uncomplicated. Designer JJ Martin hasn’t been in the game long but she certainly knows how to play it (I think I have found my new lady crush for 2019). She is such a talented woman; starting her own label very organically in a foreign city and forging forward with a great response from the Milanese community (the toughest of judges). La DoubleJ took over La Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II to showcase Martin’s latest collection with a high energy band and dancing, lots of dancing. The epitome of her nature and free spirit.
There is plenty of leopard print within the collection, again, cleverly mixed with contradicting patterns and used in strong shapes and must-have pieces.
Nouveau, romantic, floral patterns are robust and colourful, a vibrant update to the muted colour palette of turn of the century style. The patterns run through to knitwear in gorgeous lurex and deeply saturated yarns. Primarily collected from Mantero Print House, the prints have been given a fresh lease on life through La DoubleJ.
