LFW – Jayne Pierson SS12

21 Sep

For spring/summer 2012, Jayne Pierson collaborated with Derek Lawlor resulting in the Pierson Lawlor knitwear collection. Testing the preconceived ideas of knitwear, Pierson and Lawlor have created a conceptual knitwear collection which focused on movement and texture as well as Pierson’s signature tailoring. The duo collaborated with The Royal Ballet, with several dancers taking to the catwalk to show off the stunning designs. Strutting down the catwalk like proud peacocks, the dancers were captivating. Some stalked down en pointe, showing off Pierson’s structural designs while some shimmied to highlight the movement and textures. It really was a stunning show, from clothing to the cavernous church setting and fantastic dance performance which bought the collection to life.

Her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, entitled ‘Kingdom of Shadows’ focuses on the juxtapose between restrained tailoring and soft draping to flatter the female form. Silhouettes and shapes are very conceptual, with inspiration coming from Kubrick films, sixteenth and seventeenth century anatomists and the photography of Joel Peter Witkin.
