DESIGNER: Betty Jackson
INSPRIRATION: 1940s women's land army meets 1990s utility - in other words, a celebration of pragmatic dressing at its most chic.
TOP LOOKS: In a collection that focused on texture and tactile fabrics, the opening tree bark jacquard suit, with a circle skirt and cinching brown leather belt hit the spot, while a traditional fisherman's jumper teamed with a slouchy drawstring skirt offered effortless daywear. As always, Jackson had some killer prints, our favourite being a chocolate brown abstract foliage print jumpsuit that nipped in at the waist.
ACCESSORIES: Jackson enlisted the talents of American jewellery designer Alexis Bittar, who created over-the-top and oversized beads that incorporated Lucite and ostrich feathers for what she described as "tribal granny".
WHAT WE THOUGHT: Jackson is a stalwart on the LFW catwalk, with an inimitable English quirky style, but it felt like she was channelling a more youthful vibe for spring/summer. High shine cottons and sportswear references kept things up-to-date, while raffia and feather accents created dramatic silhouettes. In short, Jackson's model army is brimming with some rather glamorous girls.
