Jackie Lee opened London Fashion Week this morning at Somerset House’s BFC Courtyard space with the minimalist designs we're used to seeing. It was the colours in the collection I liked, whites, navy, electric blue and dark green.
This is Jackie’s second season presenting here. She studied at Central Saint Martin’s. Look 15 was an electric blue ensemble, consisting of a sweater with white panels and trousers. Look 26 was a gingham printed above the knee length dress in White and light Grey. Look 30’s tartan blue and dark green sleeveless ankle grazing dress was another favourite of mine in the collection.
“Blue and green should never be seen without another colour in between” is a saying which I hate because I love blue and green together. Polar suitable coats and polar opposites must’ve been on Jackie’s mind. Black and white looks were featured. Models wore dishevelled hair and flat shoes.
A great opening to a sure to be fantastic season from a magnificent designer. The wind and rain made me feel glum but Jackie cheered me up.
