GORGEOUS SPRING RTW COLLECTION BY PAUL & JOE
John & Joe sent out a metal light red printed postcard as the invites for its Springtime display, but it may as well have been fronted with a picture of Las vegas. That’s where creator Sophie Mechaly excavated sources for a selection that was fun, amorous, and swathed in hand fronds. More accurately, she said she attracted from Scarface and Magnum, P.I. to reach key looks such as the halter maxi dress outfits and thin, light pantsuits.
Just as there will always be plants and creatures printing in a John & Joe selection, so too will there be customized jeans, lovely thrives (broderie anglaises, ruffle accents), and a boyish wink (shirts or shoes); the distinction each year comes from how Mechaly amounts them. The Las vegas throwback permitted for a new twist: classic running outfit remixed as soft silk blousons and bermuda or hybridized as a studded tux pants. The concept also intended she could go gutsy on glamour, from the gold set pants to the sequined child toy and the metal footwear. Just in situation those items didn’t completely provoke the mood, she included a vintage-style T-shirt with the range “Go for it.” Mechaly was already dressed in it, like a memorabilia from the display.
