The strong and empowered woman will absolutely love Jayne Pierson’s fiercely unique, luxury rock and roll collections that redefine the female form.
Juxtaposing a rich mix of innovative materials such as luxewoven fabrics, silks, future print, leather pleating and draped leathers, Pierson’s womenswear collections merge history and tradition, with a more contemporary and avant-garde vibe. All her pieces boast a signature premium finish with high-end details, while also maintaining a powerful and uncompromising boldness, which may well be one of the reasons why she has become well-known for dressing hardcore, power women with attitude such as Alicia Keys, Amber Rose and Stefflon Don.
Pierson’s latest collection – The Justbeyou Collection – has elements of her signature style, with laser cut and hand-painted leather, and yet in this new collection there is a new element of culture and the way it absorbs into the styles that we wear on the street. Luxurious, perfectly balanced and featuring popping vibrant colours such as azure blue and yellow taffetas, Justbeyou SS17 is delicate and structured at the same time. I got the chance to ask her a couple of questions. Here is what she said.
In your two last collections, you collaborated with artist Neale Howells on hand painted leathers with leather laser cutting. We can’t get enough of them! Are we going to be seeing more of this collaboration for AW17?
Yes, definitely! However, it will very much be a development of what we've been working on for the last year. We havesome truly amazing collaborations this season which I’m so excited to show everyone!
The Justbeyou collection celebrates womanhood in all its guises, both strong and soft, but always complimentary. How about menswear? Is this something you are thinking about getting into in the future?
I've previously made bespoke commissioned leather jackets for men, but I've yet to make it part of the mainline. Watch this space!
Film and Fashion seem to go hand in hand in your collections.What comes first the story or the piece?
It happens simultaneously.The story creates the piece and the piece tells the story. They're both inextricably linked.
