Jasmin Shokrian

Jasmin Shokrian celebrated the tenth anniversary of her brand last season. So it’s only fitting that this time out, as she commenced a new decade in business, she expand her design horizons. This collection wasn’t a sea change for Shokrian, but it did see her digging deeper into the things she loves and challenging herself to incorporate some stuff she hates. There was a nice sense of tension here. As far as the “loves” go, Shokrian found several ways to elaborate her signature karate pant shape, adapting the style into a jumpsuit, skirt, and particularly good-looking knee-length shorts. She also worked up new iterations of the envelope dress construction she debuted last season; here, she made the look more skin-baring and sexy, in keeping with the collection’s overarching themes of plunging necklines and provocative cutouts. As for “hate,” it’s the word she used to describe her feelings about her palette’s two pop colors, kelly green and neon pink. Still, the pink was especially fresh-making, both as a highlighting detail and in a full garment such as a short plastic anorak. All in all, this was a typically sound effort from Shokrian and an unusually fun one.
