Jackie Lee's chic minimalism

Jackie JS Lee is a warmhearted designer born in Seoul,
South Korea, where she worked as senior pattern cutter
before moving to London completing the post graduate
'innovative pattern cutting' course at Central Saint Martins,
working at Russian luxury label KISA for a couple of years
as master pattern cutter while finishing her MA in 
womenswear at CSM in 2010.

Her graduate collection was awarded the revered Harrods'
Award and was displayed in Knightsbridge store's windows
right before the launch of her ”J JS LEE” label in March 2010
featuring minimalist, neatly constructed pieces, a bit
androgynous yet indeed superbly tailored.

Making reference to her previous collection, Jackie plays
anew for fall-winter 2013-14 with asymmetrical lengths,
high-low skirts and fluid, comfortable silhouettes in dusty
pastel shades. Among them, elegant bouclé wool coats
that look comfy despite the squared shape and oversized
knits with masculine stitches: clothes for women who
want to look sharp without being gaudy.
