Jasper Conran - London Fashion Week Spring 2008
Like his father, the famed furniture/interior designer Sir Terence Conran, Jasper Conran favors clean, modern lines and pared-down elegance. And, this season, he didn't veer far from the family's time-tested formula. The collection included belted silk twill and jersey frocks, kimono tops that fell off the shoulder, voluminous skirts, and chiffon caftans. A smattering of tribal print gowns and caftans and large bronze jewelry played up the safari theme while the rich palette of navy, burnt orange, nutmeg, and khaki had a slight retro 1970s vibe. The looks were sleek, lovely, and above all, highly wearable.
