LFW - Jasper Conran SS13 Collection


For SS13, Jasper Conran's catwalk show started with a rather intriguing 'Flower power' light-up wall and a grass catwalk. This alone said to me that this season was going to be slightly different, and in many ways it was. There was a country and western feel to many of the pieces with gingham, stitched motifs, denim and patchwork. The colour palette was bright and playful, while the accessories, yet again, made a statement and complemented the collection perfectly. Models walked barefoot along the grass with hair that seemed to have been styled for that sexy, just-rolled-in-the-hay look.

My mind skimmed over the classic tailoring as I feel like this is a constant fixture within the Conran collection every season and I'd need a bit more time to be convinced of the Ranch-style designs on the denim. Personally, it was the psychedelic brights with a hippy vibe that I liked best. I've picked out some of my favourite looks below or you can scroll down and watch the full catwalk show at the bottom of this post.

The denim came out early in the show, but it was this fab rucksack that I'd be snapping up given half the chance.

Sequin mini-dresses ticked the partywear box. Wear with a tan and effortlessly styled hair to avoid looking too overdone.

Detailing like this means that it's all about making your exit in style, rather than making an entrance.  Not quite my style, but fun none the less.

Pinks and oranges have been key colours for previous collections and I personally love the combination, especially set back to white.

I loved this sorbet-shade tunic. So wearable and great for holidays.

The finale piece was a patchwork gown which was almost a step away from Jasper's signature aesthetic, but the very simple cut of the dress ensured it wasn't too fussy, despite a mix of colours and fabrics. 

Once again, the Jasper Conran team made sure to give just enough away ahead of the show via their Twitter feed so be sure to follow them.
