Jigsaw Gives Other Fast-Fashion Retailers a Run for Their Money

With stores popping up all over the UK and retail outlets in Australia and the US, Jigsaw is fast becoming one of the most sought-after, fast-fashion brands by those in the know, giving competitors like H&M, Topman, Zara, and ASOS a run for their money.

But, the distinctly London look of this label offers for a point of difference when compared to the aforementioned retailers. Jigsaw also does a fine job of balancing trends with more sophisticated finishings, making its affordable fashions and accessories appropriate for both youth and adults. Above are some of our favorite looks from the Jigsaw Autumn/Winter 2012 lookbook; head over to the company’s site to see more.
