Our humid weather calls for cut-out details, flowy fabrics and fluid silhouettes!
When you think of Autumn and Winter looks, you’d imagine a wardrobe consisting of mostly coats, jackets, trenches, wool, knits and the like. But with fashion being so global today, most designers incorporate a wide range of styles in their collections to cater to the different weather and seasons around the world. While some had more cold-weather options than others, we’ve managed to pick our favourites from New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2020 that’s comfortable enough to be worn on a day out in KL.
Inspired by American artist Francesca DiMattio’s sculptures, Tory’s collection aims to reinterpret classic themes. For example, menswear suits are given a softer shape while fluid dresses are made with structural details. The prints you see are designed by Francesca on a shared appreciation of Turkish, English and French porcelain history.
With the theme being ‘Cozy glamour’, you’re right to expect quilted jackets, fleece ponchos, furry coats and knit sweaters. But among those were also tartan and paisley-print dresses and pussy-bow tops that exude relaxed chic with an urban sense of polish that’s perfect for business.
Creative Director Nicola Glass celebrates timeless favourites such as tweed, animal prints, florals, dots and lace in this playful collection. To sum it up, every piece has a special detail to it – a khaki trench has psychedelic florals popped under the collar. A sparkly cocktail ring is moulded into the shape of a mushroom and dazzling oversized brooches are subtly shaped into spades.
A collection that’s deceptively simple yet dramatic at first glance, you’ll see the attention to detail when you zoom in closer on each piece. Dramatic ruffles and power shoulders in bright and bold colours command attention, while black and white pieces make an equal statement in precise shapes and layers.
