DESIGNER: Brit stalwart Jasper Conran
INSPIRATION: 1960s gamine types and the call of the wild (yep, we got a little confused too).
TOP LOOKS: The monochrome mod-style shifts and minimal jersey tunics got our vote, and we loved the patent mock croc leather panelled skirts and claret suede mosaic-like panelled dress.
WHO WAS THERE: Top fashion eds, including Suzy Menkes, Hilary Alexander, Hamish Bowles and Alexandra Schulman, as well as the BFC's Harold Tillman.
WHAT WE THOUGHT: We weren't entirely convinced by a few of the evening looks - a black column gown featured a collar of stiff ostrich feathers that could have easily doubled up as a false beard - but much of the daywear was beautifully executed. Conran used classic early 60s silhouettes, but injected some modern day luxe by weaving in soft suedes, furs and embossed leathers - and it was here that the collection really got into the swing.
