LFW Diary AW12: Zoë Jordan

A designer who perfectly captured the care-free spirit of SS12 last season, wowed once again on the inaugural day of LFW last month. For her AW12 offering Zoë Jordan has drawn inspiration from the ancient and weathered lands of Andalucia, Spain.
Intermixing the romantic silhouettes, that stick in my mind from last season, with an urban and sporty slant, cocoon silhouettes dominated, while stand-out pieces such as origami structure studies of the Pompidou Centre in Paris caught the audience’s attention.
Opening the show with chunky knitwear, beautiful burnt umber and crimson wine softened the impact of sharp, graphic lines, while hand-sewn sequins, gold spun tweed and deconstructed skirt suits demonstrated ample skill.
Effortlessly blending kooky snakeskin jacquard and sharp prints with heavy lace and masculine tailoring, on paper there was a lot going on, in reality Jordan got the balance just right. A heady combination of androgynous and femininity and structured and languid no one does refined, off-beat and ethereal quite like Zoë Jordan.
