J Brand’s fall lineup was all about a woman’s power wardrobe. “You can see that in not just styles and silhouettes, but fabrications and the color palette,” explained Mary Peffer, global director, marketing and communications.
The collection is heavy on jewel tones, black and taupe, which were all worked back into the other denim pieces.
Velvet and corduroy were the fabrics of choice. “We have worked with velvet usually as bottoms for our fall collections, but this time around, we really transitioned the fabric into ready-to-wear,” said Peffer, referring to the several camisole, slipdresses and jackets.
There was also a focus on outerwear: motorcycle jackets in classic black leather and denim and even a shearling and leather number.
But ironically, their most feminine look was perhaps the strongest — a black leather belted super high-waisted pencil skirt worn with a simple black fuzzy sweater.
