SHAPE SHIFTING

Moving into Fall

As summer begins to fade and fall eases in, transitional dressing becomes paramount. The season’s ambiguity calls for thoughtful staples, fabrics light enough to layer, and pieces that maintain the ease and comfort we’ve welcomed all summer.

Layers in deep hues and rich textures take the lead in Haider Ackermann’s early fall collection. The key elements for transitional dressing are an extra-wide scarf that protects against a sudden chill and a wool cardigan that can be easily shrugged off whenever the sunshine dictates.

A belted trench coat by Rick Owens is a fall staple. For a hit of glamorous drama, add a pair of strong cat-eyed frames by Linda Farrow.

When cooler weather takes hold, reach for the blanket-like swath of Rick Owens’ shearling, down-sleeved jacket. A maxi dress moves from summer to fall when it comes in velvet. Tough black leather boots finish the look with the perfect dose of grunge.

It’s a season of juxtapositions and playing-off of opposites. Weather flits between heat and a flash of winter’s coming chill, sunshine is bright but cool. Play off those juxtapositions in Balenciaga’s stirrup pants, secured over a sharpened boot and paired with a vibrant, almost ladylike sweater that moves the look from athletic and strong to feminine and sexy.

The cool-girl attitude of Sacai’s frayed deconstruction welcomes cooler weather. The rough edges are a new take on pretty, and the Rick Owens boot grounds the look.
