Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
We can see it now: a woman emerges from a shiny, black convertible wearing nearly opaque black aviators and an all-black, curve-hugging ensemble. It’s a commercial for Porsche, and she’s wearing a look from Porsche Design’s fall/winter 2015 collection. Indeed, the looks here would be well-suited for an advertisement for what the brand is better known in the states: cars. But of course, this is about clothes, not cars, and beautiful ones at that.
Sculpted silhouettes, sleek textures, and luxurious details characterized the collection. The palette was nearly all black, with accents of forest and sage green, camel, cognac, and grey. For the women, waists were nipped with bustier-like belts (minus the bust), and exaggerated belts with circular, saucer-sized buckles, unless they were worn dropped. Knee-high boots that laced down to their square, steel toes were worn with skirts that hit at mid-calf or ankle.
For the men, clean suit jackets and collared shirts were worn with ankle-cropped cigarette pants. Textures included wool and cashmere in woven and knitted form, knitted and natural leather, shearling, Persian lamb, taffeta, and velvet. The best looks were a drop-waist leather moto jacket with tightly quilted sleeves worn over a black midi skirt and lace-up boots, and a quilted leather pullover worn with a shearling-collared leather bomber and slim-fit slacks.
