Jean-Pierre Braganza A/W 2014 by xplusyequals.

For A/W 2014 Jean-Pierre Braganza showcased his signature intergalactic prints on assymetric draped dresses, boxy front shirts and a tie fronted pant suit. Up close the galaxy swirls revealed limbs, faces and delicate geometric patterns… a nod to the work of Italian Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi, whose paintings feature strong women from myths and the Bible. Monochrome swirls again appeared writ large on a louche sweater top that I would be more than happy to get my hands on, worn with zippered leather trousers and a wispy plait.

Braganza‘s speciality is combining fluid tailoring with more structured pieces, and some of the strongest pieces were a couple of stunning boxy textured overcoats. As a creator of clothing for strong independent women the zenith of this collection were eye-catching placement prints of Gentileschi‘s ladies on box tops and A-line skirts. Once again Braganza has made a beautiful collection that further refines his futuristic aesthetic whilst incorporating intriguing references in an innovative way.
