New York-based designer Jona has seen much praise for his InAisce line, featuring rough fabrics and designs that are equal parts peasant and prince. His latest preview for his FW12/13 line, however, blows all that away. Dubbed ‘Pilgrim’, the line is a leap forward in technique for the designer, with clear echoes of Tibetan nomads combined with elegant, sweeping lines and just the right amount of fur pieces to keep it a touch wild. A beautiful and unique collection that, against all instinct, makes me long for snow.
