The collection plays on the spirit of uptown New York sophistication and combines it with modern bold elements.
Graphic stripes create an optical play; in a trompe l’oeil on silk, appliqué embroidery or enlarged on silk duchess in black and chalk. Masculine and exaggerated; a melton camel wool coat is worn with a printed silk shirt and embroidered stripe trousers. A silk duchess striped column dress in graduated tones of vermillion and garnet.
Highlighting the silhouette, contrast piping traces the outlines of a wool pea coat, shirt and wide leg trouser in graphic navy and white. A sharply tailored cape in salt and pepper tweed is layered over a stretch tweed mini dress with a high shine loafer bootie with a plexi tortoise block heel anchors the silhouette.
Layered jacquards create an energy and complexity in a repeating feathered flower motif; boldly embroidered onto wool in outerwear pieces of chalk on black or navy. Scaled down, the jacquard is stamped onto a sporty quilted bomber jacket paired with a mini skirt featuring the oversized motif. In bursts of vermillion, poppy pink and garnet, the motif creates a rich intensity of color. Feathered flower embroidered trouser teamed with an enlarged jacquard double breasted blazer and a quilted sweater with an appliqué Kestrel bird patch.
Shades of feather blue, wedge wood and teal are layered in soft textures; a tufted teddy knit sweater teamed with a cropped jacquard trouser with elastic cuff.
Evening wear is minimal, long and lean. In column or fitted shapes, gowns play on contrast color blocking a mix of velvet and matt silk.
Shoes emphasize the graphic nature of the collection; a masculine loafer in a flat, a trompe l’oeil bootie, or high heel platform or a pump with a faux python. Bags include a two tone box with bombey edging, a foldover envelope flat bag with gold hardware, and a two toned marbled plexi box clutch. All lining for shoes and bags are either made from vegetable oil or recycled plastic bottles.
Sustainability is featured across the collection including certified fabrics, buttons and lining, recycled trims and zippers.
