Military Twist

New York…Abaete

For F/W 09, designer Laura Poretzky focused on giving the military trend a feminine twist. Jacket and blazers were transformed by organically shaped lapels. Jodhpurs and skirts in plum colored jacquards were illuminated with a metallic sheen. Ruffles were shown on high-collared blouses as well as on the hemline of a knit jersey dress. Small crystal pins sparkled on the lapels of suits and the fronts of tees or the  and a multi-chain belt added dimension to a simple dress.
