London Fashion Week is not all about the big names that have been well known worldwide for decades, it’s also even more a platform for relatively newer and emerging designers. One of those is Jackie Lee.
We loved the J J S Lee catwalk show AW 2017 by Jackie Lee presented at this year’s edition of LFW.
The Seoul born young lady came to London in 2007 to get a post graduate pattern course at Central Saint Martin. In March 2010 she was already launching her own label J J S Lee.
J J S Lee was inspired, for this season, by children’s dressing up games, their playing with grown-up wardrobes, and their desire to explore identity through these kind of games; hence the over-sized proportions in her AW 2017 collection.
Her collection is feminine and elegant, with a very modern twist that makes it quite unique.
Flared and pencil skirts; wide, full length, and cropped trousers. Over-sized and relaxed knitwear with flared sleeves. With big bundles of scarves tied around the neck.
A soft palette of charcoal, camel, black, white with highlights of rose and ice cream pastels like the lovely pistachio, contrasted with the intense, eye catching cobalt blue.
Tailored pieces with an androgynous chic touch to define a contemporary womanly way of being.
Certainly a pleasure to watch.
