The JMVB 2019 Summer collection is here and it again reflects the stylishly simple design aesthetic of this label. It is bold and colourful and made with summer comfort in mind with styles for every woman. The silhouette is predominantly relaxed with bold botanical prints and hot pinks featuring strongly. There are, however, enough muted neutrals as well to balance out the excitement of all that print and colour. Styles range from comfortable palazzo pants with matching tops, up-styled joggers with basic Tees, to every-day summer dresses in various lengths. You’ll also find one of this season’s hottest styles, a utility-style boiler suit. We chatted to the JMVB team and asked them to tell us a little about their inspiration for the JMVB 2019 Summer collection.
The inspiration behind the collection
“Our modus operandi is predominantly neutral, solid tones, but we were seduced by spectacular botanical prints while planning for our Zanzibar holiday in November. Not florals mind you… botanicals. Our imaginations were transported to the beach and started the creative process of bringing this capsule collection to life.
Our last winter collection was very structured and fitted so we wanted to create something soft and flowing with movement and attitude that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Comfort and summer style are at the center of the collection, with pieces that are designed to be worn both at the poolside and in the office. Starting with Elsa Schiaparelli’s hot pink colour, cerise pink, we designed our statement party dress in an uber-comfortable cerise cotton poplin.
From our Bordeaux maxi dress to our Menton boiler suit, everything is exquisitely simple. We’ve paired many of the pieces with well-cut t-shirts and even brought in a t-shirt dress, playing around with our athleisure collection to make our girls feel stylish and comfortable.”

If the hot pink is too much, the black version makes just as big an impact and style statement. Pair with some killer heels and you’re ready to party! Hot hot hot!
