Belgian born designer, Jonathon Riss, heads the house of JAY AHR and is now based between Paris and New York.
Riss has a passion for fashion, craftsmanship, embroidery and precious stones; all of which can be seen within his amazing collections.
Riss’ collections exude feminine elegance however are simple and understated yet impeccably sophisticated.
He also incorporates his passion for diamonds throughout his collections (Riss is a talented jeweller – he has previously won the prestigious Diamond International Award for De Beers) and also constructs beautiful pieces of jewellery through smaller accessory capsules.
A few of my favourite outfits from JAY AHR’s Spring/Summer ’14 and Resort ’14 Collection are below – perfectly timeless and the epitome of understated glamour and sophistication – while still remaining fresh and feminine (and I’m so impartial to a full, flippy skirt!)
