Jasper Conran

Like Paul Costelloe, there was a distinct 60's vibe at Conran. The collection started with a pebble like, monochrome print on shift dresses, as well as black and cream pea coats and frock coats. Dresses were short a-lines with front pockets.
60's muddled with 70's as skinny polo necks and slim trousers seamlessly moved into head scarves and 'Avenger' style, short jumpsuits in navy and chocolate brown that feature low slung, waist belts.
Leather, PVC and reptile style leather was mixed with suede and fur to create a rich collection that looked expensive. Square and rectangular panelling was used in appliqué format and was graphically very 60's in style. There was a skirt made of overlaid leather tabs that has been a feature in other collections this season. Leather moved into silk shifts adorned with sequins and black, cream, navy and chocolate were joined by purple berry tones and soft dove grey and silver.
A move away from last seasons more 'twee' collection it felt like Jasper was truly back on form.
