Roksanda Fall 2015
Compelling color combinations, undulating abstract patterning, and some very fine toppers done in shaved furs (or deeply-pigmented wools, trimmed in lush pelts) marked Roksanda Ilincic‘s vision for Fall. Shiny silver belts cinched most looks, sported oversized buckles, sometimes with a plush fur stole even tucked into the belting. The silhouettes were quite ’40s-inflected, and gauchos (including some patterned iterations) peeked out from under calf-grazing coats and vests. As always, Ilincic is masterful with her palettes, evidenced by getups like look 18, where a delightful, collarless cornflower blue coat swirled with horizontal maroon markings got paired with aqua-tinged orange kicks. Ilincic had her fangirls covered for evening or more somber occasions too, with a finale series of noir-focused looks that, thanks to cheeky PVC detailing and checkering embellishments, still felt light and fun despite the dark hues.
