It was well publicised earlier in the year that Jean Charles De Castelbajac had shown a collection filled with muppets including Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. The rest of his collection was less talked about and publicised but equally eyecatching.

With shoulders being such a key feature in so many collections this season, JC De Castelbajac has used an unusual and innovative way to highlight the shoulders on these clothes. Animal pictures are a another key trend that has been rumbling away for a few seasons and animal skin prints never really seem to go away. Both animal pictures and leopard print are both difficult to pull off with style and without looking twee or dated in a kind of Pat Evans (nee Butcher) way. I think Jean Charles has managed to make these work with just the right of humour. I love these offbeat eccentric pieces and I want that biker jacket.
