London: Not revolutionary but definitely appealing, Jaeger — under the helm of head designer Karen Boyd and creative director Stuart Stockdale (formerly of Pringle) — presented a collection built on the woolens and outerwear that have made the label synonymous with classic quality for over a century. Coats were cut into cocoon shapes inspired by the company’s archives, updated with boxier, oversized silhouettes and buckle closures. Gutsy outerwear fabrics and details also translated to the fashion layer in the form of quilted zip-up jumpers and allover fur shifts — practical solutions for fashionistas at the next cold and rainy Fashion Week. Even tuxedos were turned into day attire with camel suiting and edgy leather facings. Grungy plaid separates, paperbag waists and Rodarte-esque openwork sweaters will be appealing to the young and the hip of any age, all rendered with a studied and controlled hand stayed within the tasteful confines of the established house.
