Gretchen Jones put sustainable fashion on the minds of mainstream America when she won Season 8 of the reality show Project Runway. Since then, Jones has produced several acclaimed collections for her eponymous label — the latest one unveiled just yesterday on Refinery29. This fall collection is a refreshing mix of subdued neutrals and vibrant yellows, blues and purples.
As in previous collections, patterns are masterfully integrated. Here, geometric tribal prints mix with more fluid organic ones with a distinct edgy, almost digital vibe. There is a lot of play with volume, but the silhouette stills feels very feminine. Patchwork details, elongated peplums, drop waists, ankle-length pants and wide trousers and skirts are some of the stand-out details. I also love the styling detail of shoes with contrasting ankle straps — something you can copy right now, while you wait for this collection to hit the stores.
