Jacob Kimmie Spring/Summer 2009

The Debutante Jacob Kimmie collection ‘The Debutante’ for Spring/Summer 2009 is a collection designed for the new generation. A collection made for women who represent chic elegance and expect nothing more than feminine tailoring with a modern twist. The overall feel in the collection seemed flirty, showcasing sheer blouses emphasising his quirky wares. The prints designed by Christopher Trevis made the clothes seem more playful and dynamic; a longing need for a debutante making her first steps into society. Soft tailoring was far from severe and skimmed the body and drop-waist dresses gave the impression he was highly influenced by the 1920s. Bias cutting on dresses introduced romanticism and the explosion of orange and pinks towards the end of the show, showed us a new meaning of sexy but not in an overtly overstated way. It was more about simplicity, elegance and youth. On closer inspection the flowers placed in one of the models hair represented sophistication in a lady finally becoming a women.
