Bethanie Elsa Jacob

I'm very much looking forward to shooting Bethanie Elsa Jacob's collection. I came across it at GFW but recently re-found it sitting in my 'designers' file!' This is a case of a collection where the pieces are really wearable and I wouldn't mind owning one or two of them! The graffiti prints and pastels mixed with more vibrant hues really hark back to early 90s urban wear but not so much as it looks like a reproduction or 'retro'; Bethanie has very much brought the look up to date.

Baggy, masculine pieces are balanced against pastel tones, sheer layers and leg-revealing lengths, so the collection has a boyish feel but never strays too far away from femininity.
