A new collection from Jigsaw
I had a look at Jigsaw’s new limited edition A-Line collection the other day. And I like it. For a while now, I’ve been thinking that Jigsaw is on the up, getting back to its nineties best. When I had my Style Forever London launch party at the brand’s Duke Street Emporium, I had several meetings in-store and noticed lots of lovely bits and pieces. But the A-Line collection takes things to another level. This is quality merchandise; smart, modern and timeless – a beautiful range for grown-up women. It’s a luxury collection and so the prices reflect that, the Belle tailored jacket (above) is £495, and Hazel trousers, £295, are a great cut, come in a gorgeous, wool stretch fabric and are well and truly on my radar. The gold silk Dahlia top (you can just about see underneath the jacket) is another multitasking winner – and the coats are fab, too.
The brand’s creative director Shailina Parti has worked at Jaeger and is now in charge of Jigsaw’s team of talented designers who come from Paul Smith and Burberry. Both the quality of construction and fabrics used in the A-Line range are excellent, the design is simple and timeless and worth investing in.
More of this on the high street (at a slightly lower price level), please.
