LFW SS2012: Demure goth by Jaeger London
The high-contrast trend continues. But instead of utilising colours and patterns to achieve the look, Jaeger London’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection focuses on opposing design philosophies to achieve standout looks and get second glances.

Once you look past the nod to Oscar dela Renta’s Spring 2010 looks, you start to see the beauty and identity of Jaeger’s new collection. Demure bows, intricate black lace and Van Dyke-petal hybrid collars create an eclectic mix of elements that are coalesced into harmony by modern cuts.
Black and white piping emphasise the geometry of the clothes and help create stronger silhouettes. Meanwhile, Spring 2011’s stripes get a citrus makeover with tangerine joining Prada’s infamous blue-green combo.
Structuralist Art Deco and Gothic inspirations juxtaposed to flowing fabrics, strong lines in contrast with winding curves, play a major role in setting the mood of next season’s collection – a depiction of the desire to break out of conformity.
