SLOUCHY & SEDUCTIVE
Paris: Sharon Wauchob left the prints behind for Fall and played exclusively to her strengths with a terrific, quiet collection of mixed textures and masculine meets feminine frisson. Knife pleat midi skirts were a pivotal item, rendered in transparent metallic chiffon as well as delicate lace, and gauzy silhouette cutouts gave leather dresses a seductive screen effect. A slouchy fit was as alluring as it was relaxed and wool tops came with creative tie fronts, asymmetric swaths of leather and fur or beautifully scattered pinpoint crystals. Wauchob’s tailored, masculine pieces arrived as a perfect foil to silk and lace, her strong shouldered overcoats and full trousers functioning as deconstructed suiting.—Nina Stotler
