Central St. Martins College educated, Jean-Pierre Braganza, once again displayed his immense talent for tailoring and draping. For his AW15 collection at London Fashion Week he drew inspiration from aviation and the symmetry of fighter jets. Key pieces were abstract plane print tunics, war-ready bomber jackets with accentuated shoulders, and intricately draped dresses that were almost armor-like. Each look was paired with either sky-high heels or combat appropriate boots. While the overall collection had a tough atmosphere around it, the subtle details found in each look expressed a more feminine affect. Braganza summarized his collection by saying, “This woman is a modern incarnation of an exacting film noir vixen and wartime heroin.” We couldn’t have expressed it any more perfectly.
