The location: Somerset House
Joanne Black style: same as Duro Olowu
The collection: We like Stuart Stockdale. This Jaeger London Design Director’s signature style is all about aiming for ‘maximum impact, in an effortless way’ whether it be ‘easy dresses with gorgeous detail’ or ‘statement coats in luxury cloths’. Inspired by Jaeger’s vast archive, Guy Bourdin’s 70s photography and Charlotte Rampling, Stockdale’s collection was glamourous and gorgeous in every way. With everything from oversize sweaters, gold harlem pants and wide black shorts to gold-encrusted evening jackets and statement jewellery, this was a show filled with sparkling style surprises.
The wish list: Shoes, shoes and more shoes! Stockdale’s sexy wedges, peep-toes and pumps – not to mention a fab ankle boot – were delightful.
The style: The press had Anna Wintour in their sights so it was hard to focus on anything else.
