Fashion in Jamaica and the region exists, much to my annoyance, almost outside of an international aesthetic. It's my desire, then, to build a bridge between what is innately cultural, and the international industry, all the while highlighting trends and shifts within both spheres.

Chloé Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
In a collection full of pants, Chloé designer Hannah MacGibbon worked the feminine/masculine dichotomy roots of the French label.
Her neutral color palette, luxe fabrics and tailored looks were seemingly inspired by men's tailoring, while high-waisted, wide-legged pants were paired with tight sweaters for an uptown-sexy look.
Still, as strong as the collection was, and while i'm sure sales will be good for the label as soon as the weather changes, I really hope that MacGibbon will dig a little deeper for future collections, and maybe give us pieces we all don't expect.
