It was interesting to experience my first show in the new location of the Car Park in Soho. The British Fashion Council have worked very hard to set up this new venue to showcase London fashion week's sponsored new up-and-coming and established designers. The large cavernous car park arena certainly had the space and seating that was so successful at the previous more prestigious location of Somerset house. 'Whiplashed' SS16 is the third Jean Pierre Braganza show at London fashion week and it didn't disappoint.
I really loved the way he took men's tailored classics like the tailored waistcoat and mixed with bright floral feminine flirty dresses. JPB also made sure that there were the classic easy to wear silhouettes, wide legged slacks, loose tops that are so commercially popular with in a well constructed collection. Maintaining his unique deconstructive manipulation of tailored structures, he produced very wearable pieces elevating this collection into his most sophisticated and grown up yet.
