If you're a fan of the designer's work you won't be disappointed. The collection - which drops on September 10 - is the perfect combination of Wilson's statement sculptural designs and Jaeger's paired back but luxe aesthetic. It features everything from bold statement cuffs to bib-like collars and necklaces that will see you from season to season. If that doesn't get you excited already, the collection is particularly good because the pieces come in at an affordable £120 to £220 price range.
We recently caught up with the designer to find out how the partnership came about, what he has planned for his own line and with his partnership with Jaeger is set to be a permanent fixture
In a recent interview, Mother of Pearl head designer Amy Powney praised the quality on the British high street saying that brands like Jaeger, Whistles and Joseph are really bridging the gap between the high street and designer lines and often with the same quality - and it's true. Jospeh in particular have been producing great collection after great collection so it comes at no surprise that they have decided to follow Jaeger and show at London Fashion Week.
‘We felt we were ready for the next thing, hence the show,’ a representative from the brand told ELLEUK.com. ‘Shows make such a strong impact, and showing at London Fashion Week was a natural choice as obviously we are such a London-centric brand.’ Last week Peter Pilotto had no qualms in saying that unlike before, London Fashion Week is now the place to be and with strong accessible brands like Joseph joining the show rooster, it looks like things will stay that way.
It's no secret that I'm a fan of all things Jaeger so it's safe to say that I was already sold before I saw Stuart Stockdale's spring/summer offerings yesterday morning, but I can proudly say that he exceeded my expectations this season.
Jaeger's signature tailoring came in the form of oversized blazers styled over the knitwear pieces that he introduced for fall. Leather is not something we've seen a lot from the brand, as last season saw them focus on fabrics like velvet, but leather appeared in abundance in black on dresses and in camel on skirts. The colour palette worked because it was varied. For people like me who don't feel out of place wearing black in the summer, Stockdale offered black knitwear and blazers but he also introduced gold metallic shirt dresses styled with skinny suede trousers. Knitwear also came in nude styled with shorts in brown suede. Towards the end of the collection, jewel tones like deep greens, aubergines and blue appeared on dresses nipped in at the waist and on wide leg trousers - think Proenza Schouler a few seasons ago and you're nearly there.
