My experience of seeing the Jennifer Morris SS14 collection was a rare LFW delight. These days, even the newest graduate designers leave you waiting for what feels like hours on end before they present their collections, but not Jennifer Morris. Nope, she personally welcomed each guest into her suite at Gibraltar House with a G&T and a copy of her show notes – she’s my kinda woman! Talking me personally through the collection was not only a nice touch, but a great insight into the process and detail of her intricate range.
Silky, romantic prints dominate Jennifer’s second collection under her own name. Hues of pastel-y mints, yellows, pinks and blues were a real highlight when colour blocked on boxy, jacquard separates. The show notes highlighted that the collection payed reference to the iconic poem ‘The Lady of Shalott’ by Lord Alfred Tennyson. Made more than evident by the brilliantly juxtaposed silhouettes which payed homage to the Lady Shalott’s fragile character and the strength of Sir Lancelot’s armour suiting.
All in all, a fantastic collection from a designer to watch out for!
