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.
They have broken the collection down into three concepts: Clown, Elegant Rock and Future. The “Clown” inspiration represents easy, relaxed and over-sized shapes. “Elegant Rock” features layered looks with strategically placed slits and cuts in fabrics paired with several varieties of sexy leggings. JNBY sees the “Future” not as uncomfortable structural pieces but as simple and functional living pieces with structured details.
I picked out two pieces, one from the “Elegant Rock” collection and one from the “Future”. I love the black stretch knit tunic because I can wear it so many ways. The pleating on the front gives it enough of a design element to make it extra special, $165.
My 3/4 length JNBY jacket is my new favourite for Spring 2011. The muted grey tone matches with most things and it’s made of a light weight cotton blend which makes it easy to wear during the summer. It fits like a glove due to the intricate design of the folds on the back of the jacket, $335.
If you are looking for easy, functional and interesting pieces to enhance your wardrobe for Spring 2011, I suggest dropping into one of the many JNBY locations for a visit.
