It is no accident that the Musee Bourdelle continues to be the show location for Bouchra Jarrar’s haute couture collections. The impressive marble sculptures and inviting surroundings are a perfect backdrop to her statuesque designs.

This season Jarrar again proved her ability to imbue that unique Parisian style of dress in her collection. A cool urban chic that looks both effortless and sophisticated at the same time. There were the recognizable Jarrar stripy knit scarves that, because this is a spring/summer collection, crisscrossed the models naked torsos - modesty maintained by strategically placed belts. Actually a lot of this collection, which included a generous herringbone coat, a long shearling vest and a big sliver buttoned brown felt aviator coat, looked like it would have fit better in a winter show.

But as the seasons continue to blend (if we discount this snowy week in Paris) maybe the designer is just a bit a head of the game with her approach. She simple cut off the sleeves on her heavier pieces so that, if left unlayered, bare arms could be caressed by an evening summer breeze.

There were a number of beautifully tailored midnight blue suits at the start of the show that would make for a great update to any business woman’s wardrobe. Their more fluid silk counterparts, including a stunning tank top dress with a scoop back, that Jarrar sliced so that it subtly curved slightly off center down the back, also had a easy grace to them. 

After seven seasons Jarrar has proven to her clientele that she knows haute couture daywear like the back of her hand. But at this point with her signature label it is time for her to explore more fully how she can use her haute couture skills to help women update the way they see eveningwear. When she crack’s that nut there will be no stopping her.
