According to Paper Journal, Jinkins was one of three London students whose final collection was sponsored by Japanese denim mill Kaihara, and she used its selvedge denim to create the unique coated dungarees, top-stitch jackets and baggy, tapered jeans she showed. She also developed a "staple-to-fit" tailoring process by which she shapes denim into silhouettes on a model, as seen in the video below. The resulting aesthetic is sculptural and genderless.
"It feels like something very new in womenswear," said Johansson in a statement. "She works with a tough fabric, yet somehow manages to make it sexy and glamorous at the same time," said Rousteing. We wonder if the Balmain designer gave Jinkins some tips on launching a successful capsule collection at H&M. Though with this kind of industry recognition and support, she may not need it.
