London: The Korean Designer J. JS LEE paid tribute to her childhood this season with a collection imbued with personal memories. ‘Different and eccentric, a playful sports enthusiast yet delicately feminine, slightly awkward and introverted whilst sensitive and soft natured with boyish, short unkempt hair’ describes Lee in her early years. Androgynous tailored essentials such as oversized coats, chic blazers and the classic shirt juxtaposed with soft silhouettes underlined the designer’s signature aesthetic. Different shades of grey combined with lighthearted hues of yellow and fuchsia represent a soft and pure lightness. Fluffy Mongolian fur contrasted the masculine undertones as an embellishment on cuffs, collars and oversized hoods. Contrast coloured elastic stitch details shaped gathered necklines and defined waistlines for a casual yet feminine silhouette. – Christa Kaufmann
