Fans of a movie Office Space will no doubt recall—with amusement—that a sequence grill where Jennifer Aniston’s impression works as a waitress requires all employees to accessorize their uniforms with buttons and other googahs known, in a association vernacular, as “flair.” “More flair!” cries a manager during one point. “More flair!” It’s tantalizing to suppose a identical stage personification out this deteriorate behind during J Brand domicile in Los Angeles: “More flares! More flares!” The blockbuster equipment from a label’s Spring ’15 collection—Mary Bruno’s initial as conduct of design—were a pairs of denim flares, and this time out, Bruno and her group doubled, or maybe tripled or even quadrupled down on that style, branch out flares to fit each mood and style. There were cropped tailored jeans with a small illicit kick, for instance, and Birkin-ish mid-rise jeans bell-shaped about a ankles. As Bruno forked out, a update, flare-wise, was in a line: Her pivotal conformation here was a span of gaunt flares, executed in denim, velvet, corduroy, or dilate leather, that started to dilate usually above a knee; that done for a some-more pointed and some-more of-the-moment light outcome than a vintage-inspired styles chockablock in stores right now. “It’s also some-more lengthening to a leg,” Bruno noted, accurately. Of course, a flares weren’t a usually newsworthy things here: The collection also featured a accumulation of natty, vaguely military-inspired leather outerwear pieces, and it noted J Brand’s initial incursion into non-denim menswear. The pattern altogether was wary though appealing. And a collections were important above all for their concision and coherence—perhaps a many poignant growth during J Brand given Bruno began her tenure.
