Jitrois is a French company, founded by Jean-Claude Jitrois in 1981, which specialises in ready to wear luxury leather clothing. Jean-Claude Jitrois is both founder and artistic director of the company. In 1995, Jitrois created a new material – stretch leather, initially using lambskin, which fits to the body like a second skin. Re-launching as Jitrois: le cuir stretch (stretch leather), the new material was developed in conjunction with the chemist company Dupont de Nemours. Expanding the stretch leather technique to python (another world first) and kangaroo (first used in autumn/winter 2005/2006), Jitrois has managed to maintain its position as a cutting edge and innovative couture house. In his Spring/Summer 2008 collection, Jitrois used nubuck python for the first time. Jitrois is now stocked in the world’s most prestigious multi-brand stores around the globe, from Harrods in London, Harvey Nichols in Hong Kong and many, many others.
“Childhood friends Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief have always been passionate about fashion, travel and encounters of all kinds. It was only natural to transform their complementary vision into their own brand: ba&sh. Since its launch in 2003, the line has evolved around the concept of the “ideal wardrobe”: every-day-pieces made of sumptuous fabrics, with the right balance between femininity and sophisticated cuts. Their creations reflect their sensibility: desirable dresses and jumpsuits, essential t-shirts and knitwear perfectly layering with jeans and pants: a display of various prints, precious materials as cotton veil, cashmere and silk, declined in refined shapes.”
