SSENSE asked us what our favorite pieces were from the new collection by IRO. It is a brand that is absolutely amazing when it comes to reinventing the classics. They don’t shy away from shape, color and interesting details like leather patching and open knits. You can see all my choices from the french label below.
This jacket was chosen because of the color alone. I find it to be very fresh and can work for the current season and easily for spring. Wear it with dark denim for winter and over a white maxi dress when it starts to warm up.
You can never go wrong with a denim shirt and IRO has come out with new ways to keep the classic style fresh by adding interesting details like leather. Last season they did black leather front pockets and this season it is white. They are placed on the shoulders and the rim of the front pockets, that gives off a western feel without taking it too far.
Acid washed/bleached jeans are making a return this season. The great thing is the range. You can chose something more subtle like these or more extreme by others. You can easily pair these with other pieces that you already own and wont look dated.
A knit sweater is a staple that everyone should own. It can easily be thrown on with just a pair of jeans and ankle boots. IRO freshened up the classic by making it in a lemon-lime color and adding a cool detail like open weaving on the sides.
The print on this shirt is just amazing. When you are tired of a solid, but not into screen prints, I think, this shirt is the way to go. The green can easily be worn with everything from blue to black jeans and spruce up a look that would otherwise look generic.
A tweed jacket has become synonymous with IRO. Each season it is reinterpreted with either sequence and/or distressing. But for Spring it was given a new shape that is taking up everywhere, from the runways to the streets, oversized. Also this season, the theme of leather patching is very present in this jacket amongst the many others that they have to offer.
