LFW – Jasper Conran SS12

22 Sep

Inspired by bathing suits and languid sportswear, Jasper Conran’s minimalist collection reminded me very much of Calvin Klein’s aesthetic. The precise, boxy shapes were modern, lithe and sporty but far from clinical and boring thanks to the details – wraps, slits, cutaways, straps and ties. The predominantly monochrome colour palette was livened up with bright shades of fuchsia and scarlet as well as the odd block pattern. The collection was beautifully simplistic with clean lines, a refreshing change from the bundles of mish mash patterns, sequins and colours we usually see at LFW.

Thank you to Vitamin Water, official sponsors of London Fashion Week for the ticket to Jasper’s show.
