Greg Armas thought about the urban uniform for fall. “The challenge there is maintaining your identity,” he said. “In winter, the identity is more masked, and sexuality is less literal.” To put it more directly, one of his objectives was simply to make “a beautiful coat that makes you look skinny and keeps you warm.”
Armas’ girls may have been buttoned all the way up — alpaca fur scarves and felt hats left only the models’ eyes showing — but his outerwear was cut close to the body, sometimes with a belt attached, to highlight the female form. The lineup, full of cozy turtlenecks and bomber jackets, was done mostly in white, black and navy, though a windowpane pattern added some visual interest, as did a cool sweatshirt swathed in rabbit fur.
