JOLIER´s next collection Emma & Coco is revealed

Jolier coco lace pressrelease

JOLIER´s fall 2011 collection Emma & Coco has been revealed.The elegant dresses have a female agent motif. “The idea was to combine the modern woman with a retro female military officer esthetic. “I want to empower women, make them beautiful and seductive yet dominant and dangerous… give them a certain confidence”, describes Sveta Planman,designer and CEO of JOLIER. Inspiration includes the 2008 French film Les femmes de l’ombre and Salt (2010).

Emma & Coco is a continuation of the JOLIER transformable line previously represented by the Paris London Milan New York collection. Emma, the shorter of the two dresses, transforms from wide to pencil and Coco´s length from maxi to mini. Sleeves in both models transform from short to long. This functionality offers the wearer a multitude of looks to choose from. Coco with its long helm and collar mirrors the idea of the male business suit. Materials are a sophisticated wool mix, an always stylish black, and a black/nude lace.

To continue with the the agent theme Emma & Coco were shot in the historical Mannerheim suite in Hotel Kämp Helsinki. Noted fashion photographer Liisa Valonen created a subtle dialog between subject and setting leading to the final images that portray the collection in a dramatic and cinematic way. Emma & Coco arrives in stores on the 1st of August and joins the previous continuous JOLIER collections.


A Nordic Passion for Street Fashion


This season, street fashion has hit an all time high in Nordic countries as men combine hobo with boho and the ladies are sporting chic nightclub worthy fashions at all times of the day!


It’s military school drop out meets high school punk as a spectrum of styles for men collide. Capturing that “anything goes” attitude and looking as if they picked a few things up off of their dorm room floor, men street fashion is inspired by a myriad of looks. Cardigans, cut-offs and Converse are the three must haves for men this season. Scarves and trucker hats are accessories that can be found on every street corner and colors include a Mad Max array of muted reds, grays, khakis and navy.

**The Look for Ladies**

Sequins, sparkle and shine are hot day and night! From leopard prints to satin slacks, Scandinavian women can be spotted in everything from super short skirts to floor length dresses. Peep toe boots in animal prints are the “it” shoe and the bigger the accessory, the better. The same goes for purses, the over sized bag is the way to go right now. Black is in as always and shades of tan, gray and ivory are also heavy hitters for women in the color department.

These are serious designs with fun and playful attitude, so they are pretty much in line with all the jewelry they have been creating through out the years.
