In a much-anticipated collaboration, the esteemed British fashion brand, Jigsaw, has partnered with renowned London Fashion Week designer, Roksanda, to introduce a unique 29-piece capsule collection. This grand reveal took place on October 31.
This exclusive Jigsaw x Roksanda collection is the brainchild of Jigsaw’s creative director, Jo Sykes, and eminent designer, Roksanda Ilinčić. The collection pays homage to abstract expressionism, resonating as a vibrant tribute to women.
Roksanda Ilinčić, expressing her delight over the partnership, shared, “Collaborating with Jigsaw and the adept Jo has been rewarding. Merging my passion for art, tactile sensibilities, and love for vibrant colors with Jigsaw’s classic yet playful essence birthed a collection that perfectly marries elegance with whimsy. It’s a collection I believe will speak to women across generations.”
This capsule masterfully blends Roksanda’s signature architectural designs and vivid colors, infusing a fresh perspective into Jigsaw’s traditional tailoring. The pieces radiate with fluid shapes, dramatic sleeves, and striking cuts, painted in vibrant shades like fuchsia, lapis blue, and marigold, beautifully juxtaposed with timeless hues like camel and forest green.
The meticulous detailing – be it the refined rouching, dramatic fringing, or delicate plisse pleating – adds a tactile dimension to the pieces. Modern interpretations of jewelry classics, bathed in 24ct gold, further elevate the collection.
Noteworthy pieces include an opulent forest green leather shirt dress, a standout maxi coat featuring contrasting sleeves in fisherman’s rib knit, an exclusive print dress with a unique asymmetrical hem, and a bold yellow snood adorned with Roksanda’s signature chunky fringing.
Highlighting the exclusivity, Jigsaw mentioned the limited availability of this range. Some pieces, in fact, have a restricted run of just ten units.
Jo Sykes remarked on the collaboration’s synergy, “Jigsaw’s clientele, much like Roksanda’s, appreciates vibrant designs. Partnering with Roksanda to infuse her dynamic design ethos into Jigsaw’s iconic fabric and shapes has been a delightful journey. This alliance also resonates with our commitment to championing British arts, evident from the recent inception of the Jigsaw Foundation.”
Fashion enthusiasts can explore the Jigsaw x Roksanda collection at select Jigsaw outlets and on their official website. The collection offers a wide price range, starting from 90 pounds for items like silk scarves and hoop earrings, stretching up to 2,000 pounds for an exquisite shearling cocoon coat.
