Jaeger London - Autumn/Winter 2010

A subdued colour palette, velvet, zips and an excellent cut are the features that best sum up Jaeger London's Autumn/Winter 2010 catwalk show. A contrast between a sharp, tailored fit and an experimentation with drape gave the collection a classic, yet up to date feel. A set of earthy colours defined the main pieces, with subtle injections of colour via an unusual print, almost resembling a patchwork pattern.

Detailing on garments was original yet innovative, with a vast amount of attention being focused in this area. Zips were used as decoration, horizontally across knees and thighs on trousers, creating interest as well as a close fit. Perhaps one of the highlights of the collection was a pair of slim-fitting velvet trousers sporting the zip decoration, as modelled by Freja Beha Erichsen.
The use of a technique similar to laser cutting was apparent on several pieces, allowing colour from garments underneath to show through.
Cinched in waists are looking set to be big news once more for Autumn/Winter 2010, and Jaeger London encouraged this trend fully. Closely fitted waist belts accompanied dresses and high waisted pieces, refreshing the page on the hour glass figure.

The catwalk set a focused and serious atmosphere in the room and this was matched by an intrigued audience, who appeared to be eagerly anticipating each outfit. Beautiful tailoring of trousers and jackets in particular attracted much attention, and will no doubt consequently result in a sell out collection!

Award Winning

..and very overdue.
Apologies to everyone who has kindly sent me a blogger award in the last few weeks! Here are a few of them:


As awarded by Lydia over at Bang Bang You're Dead. Thanks! It goes something along the lines of answering questions and then tagging blogs you like afterwards.
So here are some answers to some questions!

Would have to be the Red Hot Chili Papers..all time favourite!

I love the behind the scenes and making of videos at Wildfox. Spring 2009 was my favourite but the current season one is pretty fun too :)

Ooh too many. I love Constantine, Amelie, The Butterfly Effect, Leon, Wall-e...

Alice in much inspiration from that story!

John Galliano will always be my favourite designer, but I love Balmain, Rodarte, Balenciaga and Stolen Girlfriends Club too.


TV Show:
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I love the OC and recently have become addicted to 90210!

I wouldn't really say I have one, but I tend to look to Ashley Olsen, Samaire Armstrong (generally from OC times!) or Juno Temple in times of fashion need.


As awarded by The Trendy Fashionista. Thank you!

Parisian Ra

Looking into some Parisian exhibitions and galleries before my trip to Paris next week, I came across an interesting article on Dazed Digital.
Menswear fashion week saw the opening of concept store Ra, in Paris. Originally from Antwerp and only just opened in October of 2009, Ra displays an eclectic mix of fashion, music, art and culture, all in a shopping environment. The idea is described by Dazed & Confused as a "Scandinavian Alice in Wonderland with a taste for goth and geometry, about to fight a Japanese warrior in outer space", a comparison surely, like no other!
