Key Takeaways: A refreshing change from the boxy shapes of past seasons, Kati Stern brought back floaty shapes and 1940’s Hollywood glamour.  Models seductively strode down the runway to old-school hip-hop beats with romantic Veronica Lake hair wearing knee-length dresses of chiffon and fur coats paired with slim oatmeal-colored leggings. Delicate chiffon followed luxurious sable, satin and velvet down the runway.  Lowered pockets, bows and piping accentuated the luxurious feel of the collection.  Key trends included: sleeved dresses, voluminous sleeves, oversized collars, oversized buttons, pocket detailing, plaid, and fur.

Color Palette:  Sand, wood and charcoal-inspired colors let us reminisce about faded sepia prints from grandma’s boudoir. 

Silhouette:  A-line skirts and slim pants complemented Little Red Riding Hood capelet fur coats.  Romantic silk and chiffon dresses were slender and form-fitting with hemlines that ranged from knee-length to floor-sweeping.  Waistlines varied, sitting at the natural waist to the hipline. Leggings–a continuing trend–were also featured.

Accessories Report: A shoe for every occasion – t-strap heels for long flowy dresses and Mary Janes for sassy shorter dresses.  Belts and bows were wide with a soft sheen, and large floppy sable hats perched jauntily on top of long loose hair.

What’s Wearable: We loved the layers upon layers of chiffon and silk in the dresses – controlled volume with a lot of romance.

What’s Not Wearable:  Skip the socks with your heels–wear stockings or go bare.
