JERSEY | Very few fabrics serve the purpose of 'clothing to live in' more than jersey. Coco Chanel was the first to use it in her models for women early in the 20th century, revolutionising the fashion world. Up to that time it had been used exclusively for men, mostly for underwear. Resembling a fabric, jersey is being knitted and may consist of the most diverse material mixtures. It has smooth, soft, breathable, absorbent and crease-resistant characteristics. Given the necessary weight it has a heavy and swinging fall. The processing of jersey requires special needles and machines which do not destroy the mesh structure and can ensure it's enormous elasticity.
BALLERINA SHIRT WITH COLLAR | At JORDAN, we define the dancing movement of a ballerina as a beautiful, generous gesture that can be found in the shirt's neckline disposition, creating a playful décolleté. The fabric falls along this movement in a way that resembles effortless dancing, uniting discipline and relaxation, structure and passion. This interplay is central to the Ballerina-Shirt and the Jersey material feels wide despite its slim optic. The shirt does not confine the body, but at the same time underlines the silhouette wonderfully.
WRAP JACKET WITH BAND COLLAR | This model's advanced shoulder seam is essential. The stand-up collar softly makes its way over the collarbone to the front. This results in a noble eye-catcher with an Asiatic edge. The shirt can be tied with the help of two long bands that accentuate the waist. The Kimono shape with 7/8-sleeves works well in combination with skirts, dresses, as well as wide trousers.
SHIRT WITH KIMONO TRIM | The characteristic neckline of our shirts with kimono trim is inspired by the winding of Japanese clothing. Due to its well-thought-out elegance, it is more than a simple shirt: the short, cut-up collar at the back protects the lower neck and the rounded V-neck stands in contrast to the severe simplicity of the shirt, while perfectly fitting into the neckline of a blazer. The shirt can therefore easily replace a classic blouse in a suit ensemble.
SHIRT WITH HEART SHAPED TRIM | What is true for our shirt with kimono trim also holds for our shirt with heart shaped trim. Almost. The U-shaped neckline with its precisely crafted lace resembles a heart, a tender detail, which results in a high-end look. The thought-out shirt, which has been tried and tested by many women, convinces through its unique simplicity. In addition, it can ser+C4:C7ve as a replacement for a blouse when worn in combination with a business suit.
KIMONO WATERFALL SHIRT | Our Waterfall-Shirt combines a Kimono cut to a soft waterfall movement in the front. The high-quality satin band at the back of the neck contrasts with the flowing neckline, which has a slimming and flattering effect on large busts. The peplum silhouette that runs between waist and hips provides for a beautiful transition when worn with wide pants or skirts.
KIMONO WITH CUT COLLAR | The secret of the Kimono's characteristic cut-up collar is a soft, supple finish embellished by a minimalistic waterfall that follows the body language and movements of its wearer. A dignified and towering expression is created. This model can be worn as a light pullover. It caresses the figure and is pleasingly airy under the armpits due to its Kimono-sleeves. In addition, it fits well underneath a blazer or jacket. The soft peplum at the hem accentuates the waist masterfully.
KIMONO WITH CUT COLLAR, HALF ARM | The secret of the Kimono's characteristic cut-up collar is a soft, supple finish embellished by a minimalistic waterfall that follows the body language and movements of its wearer. A dignified and towering expression is created. This model can be worn as a light pullover. It caresses the figure and is pleasingly airy under the armpits due to its Kimono-sleeves. In addition, it fits well underneath a blazer or jacket. The soft peplum at the hem accentuates the waist masterfully.
SHIRT WITH CUT BOAT NECKLINE | Once more, the wellness-feeling and relaxation-potential of JORDAN-Shirts are underlined in this model. The slightly cut-up, boat-shaped collar is characterised by a soft, supple finish that lengthens the neck. The shirt softly wraps around the body and shows off a slim silhouette. It is a casual alternative for all lovers of our Shirts with cut collars.
The Studio Karin Jordan basically uses three qualities of jersey.
For the casual range consisting of shirts, tops, skirts and dresses we use a classy knitted fabric made of a viscose-elastane mixture that is being manufactured at the highest standards in Baden-Württemberg.
For women who love colours the unusual jersey namend Mambo from France – made by a small company that is also committed to sustainability in production processes – is a true sensual delight. It is semi-transparent and has different colours on the upper- and underside so that it can be used on both sides. This respective surface-structure shows a fascinating colour-changing depth. Kimono-style tops, tank tops and dresses set pleasurable accents at the job or on special occasions throughout the year.
Nothing is as comfortable as the suits made of JORDAN's third quality of jersey. With a weight of 580g/rm it resembles draperies in look and feeling. With this it enables women in business to enjoy the luxury of a relaxed feeling while being well-dressed in all situations.
