Seoul Sister Jackie JS Lee opens SS15 London Fashion Week

Right angles, sharp lines, and strong edges, J.JS Lee's SS15 show offered a new age of geometry. But we don't need to do the maths to know that this trend is here to stay. Sitting amongst a spectrum of fashion moguls, pen poised, my eyes scanned the room for ample photo opportunities. Indeed, I did selfie at LFW, well because...why ever not?

A white wash backdrop covered in layered white and cream rectangles gave hint to what was to come in the collection. Atmospheric music synthesised and resonated throughout the room as pristine figures glided along the grey catwalk. 

Extreme, blue winged liner clashed with their fresh dewy skin and light application of pink blush. Hair was swept tightly back and a half bun was secured at the nape of the neck, but was incomplete so that the ends of the hair fanned out underneath. This smart and casual contrast from the hair and makeup parallelled the material of the garments and the shape and fit. 

The geometric construction of the bags was most eye catching. Black handbags had solid rectangular frames for the handles. The solidity and structure of the bags themselves shaped how formal the look was, and the use of just one frame, enhanced its unconventional yet inspiring form.

What I find most interesting, is that Seoul-born designer Jackie Lee never compromised on femininity. She still managed to deliver oversized boyish cuts and two toned neutrals, whilst remaining quirky. For me, Lee succeeded to combine delicate materials with the practicality of everyday wear.

Unfortunately I was unable to add the pictures I took for this specific blogpost, however, I have been able to find a a video of the complete show. Do check it out, it's a show packed with inspiration...SS15 is not as far away as you think!

Stay Sweet,

Alice xx
