The Fall/Winter 2012 collection headlines “Cinematic Elegance.” Inspired by the golden film age of the 1950s, the looks are sensual and seductive – with a cool, modern edge reflecting the 21st century. Dresses in exquisite wool and silk fabrics are cinched with feminine belts. Skinny pants pair with flowing bow-tie blouses and coordinated round-neck blazers. The season’s key look is a slim-cut suit in houndstooth with smart leather lapels, accessorized with a classic clutch and high heels for a statement that is both self-assured and sexy. The eye-catcher is an extra-long cashmere/wool coat in light pastel gray with a silhouette-defining belt and a natural, elegant fall.
The palette is dominated by black, white and smoky charcoal. Accents come in light rosé, ocean turquoise and pink. Superb wool and cashmere lead the cast of fabrics, supported by rich silks.
The accessories harmonize beautifully with the clothes. High and low boots still remain essential. The indispensable clutch is flanked by impactful compact bags in calf leather with fur trim and shoulder straps made of intertwined chains. The season’s must-have: the “Clizya” ankle boots fashioned of fine calfskin that duo with the “Cleide-C” croc-print bag in medium brown.
