This season J. JS Lee presented a collection reflecting her tomboyish childhood memories, as she referenced her old family photos and displayed her nostalgia. For Autumn / Winter 2015, the designer put her personal memories forth along with her signature subdued, tailored aesthetics, as the models walked down the ramp in her introvertedly feminine, yet boyish and playful designs.
With a balance between masculinity and femininity, the colour palette was kept minimal to hues of grey and black with splashes of colours such as pink and yellow. Featuring oversized silhouettes with intricate folding and asymmetrical shapes, the designs had a nostalgic touch of the ’60s flair and the Mod woman.
Lee paid homage using Mongolian fur edging as she embellished the chicly adorned cuffs and collars – ‘a nod to her 5-year-old scruffy self, playing outside in the Korean winter sunshine': signature J. JS Lee tailoring in the form of jumpsuits, oversized hooded coats, blazers teamed with loose-fit trousers. Femininity was exhibited through the A-line dresses and fitted skirts.
The Korean-born, Central Saint Martins graduate had her models styled with black pixie hair and red lipstick as they strutted in delicate high-heeled shoes and chunky sole flats.
For the first time, J.JS Lee teamed up with ‘Hainsworth’ for A/W15 , a British heritage fabric brand, offering us classic outerwear for this season.
