A confluence of elements — red sequins, the Blue Danube, Vienna and tailcoats — converged for the label’s eclectic fall collection, which featured some on-trend pieces.
“We were invited to the opera ball in Vienna and were so impressed by tails,” Adrian Runhof explained before the show. “They’re so flattering, every man looks great [but] not every woman does at the ball. It’s really mind-boggling. So we thought: Let’s experiment a little bit and translate this idea of tails for women.”
He and Johnny Talbot experimented with larger volumes and tailoring details, for instance.
The Seventies-style skirt-pants that abounded, some in three-quarter lengths and coming in a wide range of fabrics, were particularly flattering and wearable. So was the camel and red hound’s tooth suit and the tinsel tweed tailcoat worn with a matching dungaree pant-skirt and a white poplin shirt.
Sparkling metallic fabrics reflected the collection’s evening focus.
