Katharine Hepburn is an eternal muse for Katharine Polk, who always looks to the late actress’ tomboy-chic style for inspiration. But for fall, Polk also explored military references with her palette of army green, burnt orange, navy and black peppered with gold hardware and strong shoulder pad details. The lineup, heavier on casual separates than in seasons past, was full of drapy robe coats and maxidresses in lightweight wool jersey, shearling and leather bomber jackets, tailored wool suiting in a windowpane pattern and Mongolian fur accents, which added texture throughout. She also introduced knitwear for fall — her mélange yarn, a cashmere and wool blend made in New York, created a subtle camouflage effect — and collaborated with Doc Martens and Swarovski on tough biker boots with crystallized cap toes.
