For a designer that many women used to turn to for prom dresses, the brand put out a sleek, mature sportswear collection with a bit more edge. On a more subtle, more subconscious note though, did anyone see a tribute to Tim Burton here? Maybe I'm crazy, but some of the asymmetrical pieced print dresses looked a lot like Sally's outfit from A Nightmare B4 Christmas. A black leather outfit with grey stitch detail was reminiscent of Edward Scissorhands. The black and white stripes and green wild hair? Beetlejuice. I can't have been the only one to pick up on this?
The hair was up, but messy. The lipstick shade was a dark mulberry. The shoes were often a mix of contrasting colors and hardware.
Whether you think my theory is correct or not, I have to say this was a very pretty group with a good balance of sleek leather and feminine florals with some luxury embellishments thrown in. The crowd pleaser works for both the young rebel and the established lunching lady who keeps on trend.
So do you agree? Do you see Tim Burton haunting this collection or am I insane?
