This season, pristine Hermès silhouettes are interrupted by unexpected prints, abstracted in jutting tiles across fluid dresses. Bohemian, earthy colours are layered in textures – wool against glossy velvet and fur.
Intricate eastern prints, that then became abstracted in discorded patterns. A fine floral appeared faded into soft pink, contrasted with a heavy carpet-bag floral in de-saturated colours.
Stand out look:
A shearling and tan leather long waistcoat that slipped right into the seventies seduction mood of the AW14 season, and a black leather wrap dress, belted in place.
How they wore it:
Often a little undone, with wool coats unfastened so that they unfolded across the chest as they walked. Oversized languid wool sweaters had collars which folded and creased around the neck. Heeled sandals were worn with chunky grey wool socks.
A seamless charcoal grey wool coat had outsized lapels that rested open over the chest, creating a sculptural silhouette. On another look, a shrunken leather waistcoat constrained an oversized coat worn underneath.
