Show review: Jean//Phillip

Jean//Phillip fw 2009 show review

Much like entering the Rick Owens store in TriBeCa, N.Y., the guests at jean//phillip’s exclusive show were greeted with the deep rhythms of warm and glitchy minimal techno, setting the mood for a no-nonsense show. While continuing his established aesthetics and sticking to some of his signature looks, designer Jean Phillip delivered an incredibly sharp and balanced collection. Combining shiny patent leather shoes and heavier boots with bondage belts and transparent tops, the overall look was both dark and dandy. Boys will have to show some courage to wear jean//phillip’s rather bold pieces on the street. The masculine corsets – a repeated item in the show — could easily be layered with a sharp white shirt under a tight fitting jacket, however, as a unique vest alternative.
With an extremely sharp vision, a showroom examination will reveal if the production quality has matured and lives up to the designer’s obviously high goals. However, there is no doubt that this is a strong collection.
