London: Many view fashion as art, and Jaeger London’s design director Stuart Stockdale seemed to play with that notion this season. The designer cited three art movements as inspiration for his current collection – Minimalism, Modernism and Surrealism. The first of the three was evident in the opening series of looks – clean, angular pieces with panels of black or white giving them an architectural edge. Modernism appeared with sensual yet authentic materials like suede and perforated leather, as well as with boxy silhouettes that referenced the movement’s strong, unornamented lines. Vivid shades of blue with an iridescent sheen connected to the dreamy otherworldliness of Surrealism, as did trompe l’oeil effects and a blurred print featuring oversized florals. Though the disparate references made for a somewhat disjointed collection, there were plenty of wearable pieces to be found; slim trousers, sharply tailored jackets and easy shorts shone through the mix of inspirations.
