Bouchra Jarrar Collection No. 13: the taste of modern couture

Something I noticed recently... Bouchra Jarrar doesn't call her collections "Spring" and "Fall" - instead she numbers them. The little arpeggio of words... Bouchra. Jarrar. No. 13. The name appears on her website in a short and enchanting chord. Even the little "No" topped with a tiny bauble of "o" is so precise and perfect that I can't help but admire the attention to details whether I am still stuck in the virtual web, or talking about Bouchra Jarrar, the designer. 

If I were to choose the most perfect example of the 21st century Parisian couture, hers would be the one. While others are twisting their minds and threads trying to achieve "the modern couture aesthetics" failing over and over again, Jarrar quietly does it - on repeat and flawlessly.

I love every line of her clothing, The discreet charm of her designs. I love that she is the fabric whisperer and tames every material making it wrap, fall and move exactly how couture intended. I love how timeless but youthful her collections are. I love the feeling of zen. I even love the light, colours and look the venue.The whole package of happiness, thought through and wrapped-up beautifully.

Last week I shared a few designs from her Spring 2016 couture collection (the No. 13) on my Instagram saying how perfect Bouchra Jarrar would  be at Dior. The same thought later appeared on vogue.com, which, admittedly, cheered me up quite a bit. I do believe Bouchra would do a fantastic job reviving the iconic house currently going through a period of Celine, Prada and Simons knock-offs. On the other hand and should the subject of her move ever comes up, I hope she will remain solely at her own house, not only to continue building new legacy, but for her own sanity sake.

This is one of the moments when fashion leaves me unsettled, in need of discussion and looking for answers, just to calm down the buzz inside my head. It's complicated. I know I'd be better off to sit and enjoy the view, but I can't help processing the afterthoughts.

Difficult, isn't it? Jarrar is such a precious hidden gem right now. I want the world to fall in love with her and yet feel uneasy imagining the hurricane of deadlines and rush that may follow as a result.

  1. I would love to see Jarrar go to Dior... but then again, only if she were able to keep up with her own collections at the same time because I would miss them too much otherwise.
