I love being a boy and I love working with denim but if God held a gun to my head and said I had to be any other British designer at the moment I would choose Jenny Packham – Strange choice for a denim boy I know – I can’t really explain it I’m just starting to really really rate her. The collections are so, so, so tight.
If Badgley Mischka can present me with the girl I want to be with in the City that Never Sleeps then Jennys given me the girl I want to hang around Burgh Island with. Not been there? Well its a great little bolt hole on an island off the Devon coast. No television, limited phone signal and dress for dinner every night. I’d lounge with Jennys girl in the bar, a round of whist and idol chat with other guests. She gets all the admiring glances and I bask in the delight that this woman is mine.
This season I’ve fallen for the ease at which Jenny’s played with volume while keeping shape. I’m an absolute sucker for a girl with a fine figure dressing with volume while showing off a tight little waist….
AW13 and Jenny Packham stunned me by producing this fantastic look below. I wrote when I pinned this “Jenny Jenny Jenny, Jenny P I was looking for that sweater, oh it shrunk in the wash and you gave it to her to keep warm. Jenny I’d walk to NY to get that sweater back. Fantastically fresh look. Great thinking. Well talented”
The way that JPG has pulled this Resort 14 look together sent my mind reeling back to Jenny then back further still to a 2010 picture of Ms C Roitfeld the posthumous editor of Vogue Italia and her wool / fur trimmed cape covering a leather jacket. (Pic Below)
These looks make the colder times London just a bit more worthwhile.
