We're proud of our heritage
Jigsaw was founded by John Robinson in 1970 on the principal of bringing elevated design to the British High Street.
Inspired by trips to Japan and designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Comme de Garcon and Issey Mikaye, John brought the concept of Japanese design to London adding a unique British eccentric twist. He opened iconic stores, offering cutting-edge unique collections and pioneered the concept of bringing a luxury store environment to local High Streets.
50 years on Jigsaw is still known for collaborating with renowned architects, upcoming photographers and artisan mills, makers and creators to create the finest quality collections.
We love the high street
When Jigsaw opened in my town, it made everything else on the high street look like parochial mumsy tat. Jigsaw took its fashion seriously. It promised urban sophistication and a design sensibility that seemed positively exotic. Here you could buy flippy floral tea dresses, oversized boyfriend jumpers and 1960’s-style jackets in beatuiful pastel wools that came with miniscule skirts
