Summary: A somber palette of blacks, inks, shades of gray, and muted cognac showcased high-waisted tweed pants with a skinny, Audrey Hepburn'worthy silhouette, kimono sleeve coats with draped blouson backs, and long body skimming gowns delivered a different kind of sexy - one that's about the allure being revealed in what's covered up, rather than what's showing. A vintage-inspired tweed sheath featured pockets with two convex strips of tomato red about 6" apart which continued around the side seam and onto the front, highlighting the pockets. A strapless tweed sheath was layered over a black turtleneck, and a good old fashioned inky blue & black faille "evening" coat was slightly oversized, but not unflatteringly so.
