Jackie. JS Lee SS12

I am delighted that I saw this collection. Sometimes it pays to head away from the main schedule and into the Portico rooms at Somerset House. Jackie was inspired by her niece eating candy floss, so the press sheet said, and although the colours were very pale and suited to this theme, there the resemblance finished.

It was a fine collection of lightweight and flowing fabrics beautifully cut. The candy floss link makes me think sickly fairground rides but this was an elegant show of tailoring. The pleating and cuts did cast my mind to Richard Nicholl, however that is no bad starting point.

This lady I am going to keep my eyes on.
