Styled by

Dark, dreary, chilly – not adjectives that come to mind thinking about editorial spreads in April magazines.

Tailored, menswear-inspired pieces put the lady back in her power suit accessorized with chic mini briefcases. The Far Eastern characteristics in the collection lent a softer touch to strong and boxy leather garments while rich, warm colors accented gloomy grays and neutrals. Whether jet-setter or house sitter, if opulent garb is what you require, this is the collection to seek come fall.
