SEDUCTIVE THEATRICS
London: For their F/W 13 presentation Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings explored yet another facet of quintessential Englishness, bringing to life a modern day Sherlock Holmesian gentleman, replete with bowler hat and three piece flannel suit. But although many of the looks were the very definition of dapper with deft layers and a refined palette, the Hackett collection included plenty of flash as well, via rich velveteen and brocade evening items. These closing ensembles were theatrically seductive and cut with a slim, modern silhouette to make a case, perhaps, for a true revival of the art of dressing up.—Nina Stotler
