The cool Canadian’s signature constructed tailoring now seems to gravitate towards partial deconstruction, but this season’s focus on structure, science fiction, black and anatomy results in something truly organic. The beautiful structured pieces in wool and leather are strong and dynamic, truly some of the most desirable of their kind. With great contrasts, stripes, matelot and other button details, and some semi-transparent knitwear, Jean-Pierre takes us through very different accents to show his more casual side. Fiery red comes in bold flashes, then in caleidoscopic stripes, before the little black dresses show what embellishment is (and should always be) about – much more striking when used in moderation. The collection is full of wardrobe staples with a dark, wild, sexy edge but also with a softness that comes from organic shapes, great textures, and the way these work with colours and prints. I really wonder how Jean-Pierre does it, and whether it’s legal to make such style statements look so easy and effortless.
