Jasper Conran catwalk show report S/S 2016 for LFW
Jasper Conran presented a swamp inspired set which was translated in his earthy spring/summer 2016 collection at BFC Show Space for London Fashion Week. The new looks were filled with greens and browns and nature inspired prints.
In tempting the public up until his SS16 show, Jasper Conran’s social media pages published insights into the collection. Pastel greens, woven yarns and a shot of the glimmering emerald sea enticed the the masses. What Conrad presented this morning, against a mirrored, sea-green backdrop and floor, was a print and stripe filled collection of cascading greens, bright whites and charcoal tones.
Chiffons were just as welcome as thicker, blend fabrics reflected in the mirrored accents, whilst the models took to the catwalk at this year’s BFC Show Space.
Gowns shimmered and graced the ankles, whilst balloon dresses with inserted pockets hung delicately over gold sandals.
Shorts in the collection had subtle, rounded edges and there was a good balance between simple graphic cuts and soft cuts, which added to the plethora of seemingly united styles and garments, ample in wearable choices.
The prints themselves were somewhat abstract and no two-green shades were the same. The cuts accentuated the prints, as dainty leaves decorated inverted pleat gowns and harsh stripes exaggerated the sharper cuts.
The essence of the show was organic: organic structures, over-sized elements and asymmetric crossovers can all be easily identified. In looking at Conran’s previous collection, one can see similarities to the AW15 natural elements and warmer tones, whilst inevitably, summer holidays were a focal point for his SS16, creating a delightfully wearable and strong collection.
