Carrying over the Eighties “Dallas” references from her pre-fall offering, Veronique Leroy spiced up her runway with glitzy touches of gold leather and a quirky photo print of sports cars. The two came combined on a wrap leather skirt and a long, flaring shearling coat.
But the designer balanced the showy pieces with textural and sometimes rustic fabrics, crafting coats from natural-colored sheepskin and tracing discreet gray lines to define the contours.
Similarly, the knit pieces were edged with tiny, dense frills, giving wrap dresses and skirts, or sweater shoulders, an ultrafeminine touch. She also layered cream knit tops and dresses with giant diamond-shaped holes over colorful animal-print bodysuits.
And to heighten the fun Texan vibe, Leroy used topstitching on crepe blouses and dresses, winking to cowboy shirts, as well as a small tartan motif for cropped pants and boxy short-sleeved shirts cinched with gold leather belts.
