J. JS Lee has stepped forward into the limelight, kicking off London Fashion Week with a show that was not only accomplished but highlighted that she can now be counted as a player.

Inspired by her tomboy childhood years, J. Lee showed a woman comfortable with contrast – sophisticated yet naïf, playful yet sport influenced and yet yearningly feminine with her liner oversized stretched tube dresses, sports inspired elastic stitch detail gathered necklines and defined loose sack-like waists and chunky waterproof zippers.

J JS Lee’s vision was of a modern day Miyake enthusiast who cuts smooth stride in a very laid back confident approach.  Yes, her signature accents were still all there with masculine undertones of relaxed tailoring in the form of oversized coats, chic blazers and androgynous loos-fit trousers but there was a new assuredness to this collection, appealing to an older, more savvy woman. Sure fire trend for the season, Mongolian fur, was juxtaposed with J JS Lee’s androgyny and somehow it worked.

This season, Lee teamed with innovative British heritage fabric brand, ‘Hainsworth’, offering minimalistic tailoring in the form of classic outerwear combined with gorgeous luxury oversized roll-necks and jersey dresses.

Lee’s attempt to combine the rough with the smooth just paid off.
