It isn’t a Saturday at LFW without Jasper Conran in the schedule and this season was no different. Celebs and the fash pack were out in force for one of our favourites and we weren’t disappointed. Like elegant, woodland elves, the models trooped the runway in their flat metallic sandals that ushered in a paired down glamour and relaxed vibe.
Abstract leaf and bark prints were order of the day, carried through with a largely monochrome and shades of green palette. The soft, almost autumnal palette was incredibly calming which fitted with the overall soft feeling of the look.
Silhouettes were kept relatively clean, with sheath dresses, box tops, 3/4 coats and long line, strapless tunic tops. Dresses veered between loose shifts and glamourous floaty maxis rolled out in overlayed printed chiffon that really gave it depth.
There were nods to safari styles, with a little safari playsuit and a co-ordinate tunic top and cropped trouser. Necklines were high round necks or totally strapless, but the clean necklines refocussed the eye to the stunning prints. Pieces remained quite boxy and dresses loose and free flowing. Pleats were again evident here, as were stripes (both horizontal and vertical as at J. JS Lee).
The last section of the show, the glamorous, evening wear, featured incredible sequin embellishment in the same tree / branch prints that felt more like an updated camouflage. A gorgeous exploration of nature and print, ushering in a significantly paired down glamour that we love.
