“In the 70s and 80s, it was very unlikely to mix your patterns, textures, and proportions of clothing – the recombining of these advocates the unlikely yet contemporary combinations within our line, which then extends itself to your own fashion story. Today we’re doing a tonal, neutral ensemble, pulled from and inspired by the tonality of camouflage – from the army greens through the tans, in an overall sophisticated look. Pop with an accent bright from Stripe Deux Soleils… we recommend a silk blouse, as fall/winter 2012 has become ‘the season of the silk blouse’ (mind the dry-cleaning charges!)”
HIGH PRICE POINT, LOOK 1: from left to right, some covetable items for your closet... Lanvin's Draped Silk-Gazar Top is a rich, must-have hue for fall, and provides just the right amount of color for this look; in a similar plum hue, NYLO's Cowhide Combat Boot is distressed in finish yet pulls together this whole look; Ermanno Scervino's Khaki Hand Treated Cargo Pants in this 'pebble' neutral will look great with SCOUT's Original Deano tote in Camo Tow *when it arrives in November; to top off the look, fasten Burberry Prorsum's Heavyweight Stretch-Ponte Military Coat.
LOW PRICE POINT, LOOK 2: from left to right, some perfectly-priced pieces for the season... this pair of Quicksilver's The Base Cargo pants is relaxed in fit yet crisp in color; ASOS's Parka with Trapper Hood is a fun piece of outerwear for cold days and nights; SCOUT's Crown Jewels cosmetic case in Stripe Deux Soleils works as a smaller bag to stow in your everyday tote, or as a clutch to use out and about, when all you need is your keys, cards, and phone; Parker's Long Sleeve Tie Front Blouse is polished and feminine, and will offer a fantastic contrast with this pair of Steve Madden Troopa Boots.
