London: Jaeger design director Stuart Stockdale left behind last season’s graphic lines and angular shapes in favor of a softer, more laid-back take on classic sportswear. Perfectly tailored trousers, smart blazers and simple sweaters were appealing basics, and checks and houndstooth patterns connected with the label’s traditional English heritage. As to be expected, outerwear was the show’s highlight; floor-sweeping coats were the standouts with one version made from hefty shearling, and a black fur with oversized lapels was luxurious if slightly quirky. Overall, though, sophisticated basics were the story, and Stockdale’s pieces fit the bill.
