Our London Fashion Week season started with a bang, with our (and by our I mean Sophie from The Fashion Rubiks and I) first show of Day 1 being the amazing J. JS Lee.
If you haven't already heard of this lady, Jackie Lee is a South Korean design genius and graduate of 'The Minimalist Year' from CSM, with other alumni of said year being the likes of the one and only Simone Rocha - so you know Jackie Lee is in the pool of fashion house royalty.
Bringing classic tailoring with raw cuts and edges, with an element of Victorian inspiration (and with this, it's all in the details), the collection was everything a modern day woman could have asked for. What would usually be deemed as brave colouring for A/W was translated into beautiful, wearable colours through the choice of tough but feminine textures. Jackie Lee reminds us that being a woman isn't about a shorter hemline and a lower neckline, but the power behind the clothing. Layering skirts and dresses over trousers, J. JS Lee provides chic, tailored pieces for the girl with that 'little more'. The former designer in me has never been more inspired.
