She releases her SS17 lookbook exclusively on Culture Trip below.
In an interview with Culture Trip, Jones says, “I had a vision of this dystopia we are living in that it would force a utopia from a a group of people.” The designer’s goal in life and this collection is to create “a safe place where we can love, share equal rights. Perhaps we would have permaculture gardens and solar power.” Artist Terence Koh shared rave reviews of the SS17 lookbook, shot by photographer Alexandra Carr, known for shooting actress and model Paz de la Huerta’s photo book, The Birds Didn’t Die Over the Winter.

As Jones releases her lookbook in the landscape of a nation divided, with many mourning and protesting a Trump presidency, pieces in her collection — created before result political events played out — feel strangely prophetic. “I never thought the elections would end on this note so the vision [see her “Don’t Fuck Up The World” /”Handle With Care” tops] sadly manifested. It’s a hope of mine that the people come together to work hard for the higher vision and goals of humanity.”
“In art and design I always try to transform my fears and anxiety because it’s a realm where all wounds are healed and all fears soothed,” Jones said.
