shapes, interplay of matt and glossy materials, pleats and folds are features
that are characteristic of Jaana Parkkila's designs - in her new spring
collection, too. COATS The collection includes two unlined coats made
of water-repellent polyester. One of them is a 7/8-length matt-textured
trench-coat with a multiform collar and striking pro-truding pockets as
well as finger-like buttons that empha-sise the coat's geometri-cal look.
The other coat has a zip-closure, and it is accented with vertical pleats
and a dramatic collar.
In Jaana Parkkila's exquisite linen collection, crease-resistant matt
linen is combined with glossy chintz. A long sleeveless dress has a magnetic
closure at the hem, which can be used to change the silhouette of the
dress from flared to tulip shape. At the front, the dress has a diagonal
chintz stripe which is repeated in a long wraparound skirt and two jackets.
Besides the long skirt, the jackets can be combined with a slim short
skirt or with loose-fitting straight trousers. The trousers are asymmetrically
cut at the waist and they have slits at the bottom of the legs. A T-shirt
tunic, a hip-length top and a simple sheath dress also go with the two
jackets. An exciting spiral skirt with playfully combined matt and glossy
surfaces complements the collection.
The collection's jersey garments are patterned with raised stripes in
tone-to-tone colour combinations, in blue, sand and grey. The line comprises
skirts, tunics, jackets and a dress, all of which are appropriate for
many different uses.
Pleats are characteristic not only of clothes designed by Jaana Parkkila
but they also appear in her bag collection. New models in the collection
include a handbag and a feminine briefcase with arched metal handles that
provide an effective contrast to black leather.
