JASPER CONRAN AW19 – The dress

 

JASPER CONRAN AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Day 2 , Saturday 16th Feb

THE DRESS’

A sublime collection of sophisticated design. The ease and comfort of sportswear – the jumper, the straight skirt, the sweat top, the shirt. Re-imagined and constructed as a one-piece, ultra matte or low -key sheen. Drap, candy, organza and tulle.

Proportion and order expressed with a slouch. Elegance restrained. Dresses, skirts and tunic tops always with a pocket. Skirts slit to allow a stride. A high – gloss no fuss slip -on shoe.

Three dimensional pattern, a Constructivist mix. Industrial and angular formed in Ebony, Walnut, Ceder, Rust and Clay. Off-set by curves of vivid colour, Scarlet, Yellow, Blue and Violet.

Monastic shapes cut away and to the floor, composed in their informality. Transparency lapped, layered and coloured in a series of deep browns, greens and blues. Slender slips of plume, subtle in their airiness.
