Sweeping the ground like trains, full, dark maxi capes strike a masculine/feminine look. Featuring slits for the arms, they are worn over short jumpsuits and flounced blouses and tied delicately at the neck with a black satin bow. With their fluid cut in midnight-blue woolskin or black tweed, they leave a sense of freedom in their wake.
Full and curvy puffer jackets and overcoats wrap the silhouettes in an air of nonchalance. These winter warmers with puff collars come in vibrant crimson, dark purple and indigo hues, worn open or belted with the double C over jacquard knitted dresses with snowflake motifs.
A black leather look is paired with a cardigan, baggy pants and a loose jacket. The glossy sheen is echoed in the rows of pearls adorning sleeves and belts, clutch bags and cuff bracelets, creating contrasts of black and white. Light and supple, the leather comes with a slightly creased appearance. In a more matte version, the jumpsuit features a downy-wool-lined collar.
