A-Jane SS19 London Fashion Week

Alice Jane’s SS19 collection for A-JANE studied the aesthetics of repetition; with a degree in New Music Composition from the University of Music Freiburg in Germany, the Malaysian-born designer explored the connection between philosophical concepts and avant-garde forms of art in this latest sartorial offering at London Fashion Week’s Fashion Scout.

‘Repetitions?’ SS19 showed Alice Jane’s natural transition from Neue Musik to New Fashion. A-JANE’s designs are intended to challenge the viewer, with abstract and avant-garde silhouettes that play on volume and perception. The A-JANE aesthetic is all about oversized silhouettes and androgynous tailoring, with sleek and minimal designs alongside futuristic flourishes and pared back embellishments.

For SS19, dresses and separates were elevated with multi-dimensional sweeping layers, intensely ruffled and pleated cuffs, and showstopping volume on a statement sleeve in crisp minimalist shirting. Skirts sported splashes of bold lime green on midi-length paneled pleats, and a cropped monochrome jumpsuit was cinched at the waist with a modified obi belt in brightest orange.

The concept of New Fashion is a complete fusion of thought, of sartorial expression, and of Neue Musik. Alice Jane is a fashion composer, and her designs are a reflection of everything that she is. With a futuristic 60s feel and a colour palette of mouth-watering orange, lime, and teal against a backdrop of black and white, SS19 featured vibrant clashing hues and shapes that drew inspiration from modern art.
