The Blues Brothers’ sophisticated sisters: satin ties, slim suits, and outsized pinstripe trousers.
Pearls, pearls, pearls:
Hundreds of tiny white pearl orbs underscored the heavy masculine influences with a timeless femininity. They dotted toes and hung like googly eyes from loafers; they trimmed black satin collars and ties, and peppered leather gloves like studs; and on languid trousers they came in neat vertical lines, like pinstripes.
How they wore it:
With enormous bowler hats that engulfed heads and left a mysterious shadow over the eyes.
How they walked it:
Glancing from side to side at the front row and audience. No doubt a nightmare for the photographers in the pit, but it gave some sense of the personality of this decorated, promenading Armani woman.
Stand out look:
A monster white shaggy fur cape, bled through with black and turquoise.
