Okay, now I really need to see the whole collection immedietely.
Sarah Burton showed a military-inspired pre-fall lineup, packing it with a feminine take on traditionally masculine fabrics and details. “Like the men’s collection, it’s about uniformity and has a regimental feel with the richness of ceremonial dress,” Burton said. And, while the collection had its share of box and knife pleats, nipped waists and sharp edges, the details looked luxurious and ultrafeminine: Navy coats featured delicate satin stitching, and peacoats were topped with fur collars and chain embroidery meant to mimic the gold bullion braiding on military uniforms. Even the felt riding skirts with asymmetric hems and the sweeping black evening gowns glittered with embroidered gold details. For this collection, Burton veered from her mostly navy-and-cream palette to embrace color in the form of electric orange ponyskin jackets and hot pink dresses. And, for off-duty moments, there were some ultraluxurious coats, including ones fashioned from astrakhan, fox and textured velvet.source: WWD
