We've seen some interesting muses at LFW, but Peter Jensen's muse for his AW/07 show surely wins hands-down as she's been dead for 410 years! Christina of Denmark was painted by Holbein, who had been asked to do portraits of suitable brides for Henry VII, but the Danish royal refused to marry him. Her sombre demeanour was present in Jensen's dingy palette of colours; the overall gloom was lifted by modern fabrics and shapes and a sporty influence which seems to be all over the catwalks.
