Back at the beginning of September, Christina and I were kindly invited to the reveal of the PRITCH AW14 collection. Before we made our way to Wolf & Badger, where the press day was going to take place, we took the opportunity to shoot each other’s outfits. I went for a casual comfy look in black and white consisting of my ASOS Ridley jeans, a Forever 21 Top*, Zara boots and my Rebecca Minkoff bag*. You may have noticed that I’ve been feeling rather monochrome for the past month, and don’t pass on an opportunity to take my new H&M coat for a spin. It has such a unique silhouette and is the perfect transitional piece.
After being greeted with a sumptuous glass of champagne by Irina, the creative director of PRITCH, we admired the gorgeous leather jackets on display. PRITCH’s AW14 ‘Future Commander’ range is the perfect balance between form and function. The hand-stitched jackets with wool details are adorned with detachable options like collars, belts and sleeves, and are “aimed at the female commander who takes full charge of life and makes decisions that others would avoid”.
Each leather jacket has a distinct name, like Blackmore, Hunter and Jezebel Revolver, that describes its unique mantra. One of my favourite pieces, for example, is called Ignition: “You are the blue plasma that ignites the fire. The life and soul of every party, Ignition is bold and sexy, but smart enough for any occasion. Ready to take off at any moment; you light up the night and brighten the day.” The perfect collection for strong women, who know what they want and aren’t afraid of taking matters in their own hands.
