Janet McTeer were cheering on the collection from the front row.
The sedate palette of black, grey, navy and dark brown looked elegant and rugged. It was easy to understand for their core customer, but more fashion forward than they have been in past years. The clothes may not hold up to hardcore polar expeditions like the one above, but they look damn good.
The Black Sail collection had plenty of primary colors in clean silhouettes. The more sporty line fits into the contemporary sailing theme they are known for. The show was styled by my former classmate at Parsons, Brian Coats.
