Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock introduced furs and footwear to their brand of understated luxury for fall, as they staged Brock’s first runway show after a few seasons of informal presentations.

 

Exploring an Edwardian theme, the husband-and-wife duo focused on the coat dress, offering nipped-waist versions in white wool, lush mink and gold satin, the last style paired with straight-legged denim. The lineup showcased a collage of rich textures: off-the-shoulder dresses and pencil skirts featured metallic floral embroideries drawn from the period’s rich upholsteries and interiors, with some layered under fox-fur scarves. A head-to-toe white look, pairing a cashmere sweater with a velvet embroidered skirt, felt effortlessly luxe.

 

Velvet slippers and brogues, designed in collaboration with George Esquivel, made even the fussiest looks — think full corset skirts with Victorian-inspired puff-sleeve tops — feel grounded and modern.
