Inspired by the ambiguity of 1920s dressing, Jackie JS Lee’s second show at London Fashion Week explored the inner workings of androgyny at its best. The models were ethereal beauties, but the clothes that hung off them spoke a thousand manly tales. Boxy, structured blazers were juxtaposed against romantic column skirts in a largely monochrome palette.
Lee succeeded in exposing subtle bursts of delicious colour, as fabrics played with light, tone and texture. Dropped waists and blushing eyelids were striking enough for most, whilst dip-dyed dresses exuded elegance and charm. It was boy meets girl in a refreshing twist on winter’s hourglass silhouette.
