LANGUID + LIQUID
London: Maria Grachvogel reprised her signature long and languid silhouettes for Fall. Floor-sweeping dresses are her forte, and there was no shortage of new versions; some of the best featured a plunging neckline and a belted waist that enhanced womanly curves. High-waisted, roomy pants echoed the dresses’ shape and looked sophisticated and easy to wear. This season, the designer also added new silhouettes that fit closer to the body, like pencil skirts and slim suiting pieces that were sharply tailored and narrow. Architectural cuts and drapery accentuated the shoulders on many styles, adding a sense of strength to the collection. Cropped fur jackets in rich black were tactile and luxurious. While perhaps not obvious at first glance, nature was the inspiration behind Grachvogel’s collection — a watercolor print that looked like the swirling tide was used for the finale looks, and jungle greens enlivened the mostly neutral palette.
