The collaboration between dark and light, soft and hard fabrics
I had the chance to spend some time at the 4th Avenue JNBY store to preview their current Spring 2011 collection. What I admire most about JNBY is how innovative they are with their designs. Each piece is so unique yet so wearable for everyday.
If you don’t know JNBY, let me briefly introduce you. It’s a line based in Hangzhou, China, and both its men’s and women’s collections are making huge waves in the North American contemporary fashion market. JNBY is about an individual’s interpretation of trends and design as it relates to today’s modern lifestyle — hence the acronym, Just Naturally Be Yourself.
I love this JNBY (Just Naturally Be Yourself) shirt dress. It feels professional and preppy, but totally man-friendly at the same time (think: thrown-on boyfriend’s over-sized shirt). I recently wore this outfit (sans clutch, but with my pink Kate Spade bag), to meet and talk with my high school fashion teacher’s grade 11/12 sewing class. (Which was fantastic! And they have an upcoming fashion show that I’m excited to attend! Ohhh memories!).
