Fit on the hips and fuller through the legs, this is my favourite trouser cut. Side pockets, crease, perfect length, flawless design. These entire looks from Bouchra Jarrar’s Spring 2012 collection (although presented during the Paris Couture Week, this is undoubtedly ready-to-wear) are so very much to my liking, beautifully balancing strict lines and feminine details. The military factor is present, of course, one of the influences I love the most in fashion: the white stripe on the grey pair of trousers, the epaulets and double breasted silhouette of the jacket. And then come the backless gilets, the ruffled hemline, the belt tied in a bow and the shawl lapel of the jacket that complement so well that masculine touch.
