Sea­soned performer

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

DAVID Jones has launched its au­tumn win­ter 2017 cam­paign Live Out­side the Sea­sons.

Much like Perth’s weather last week, the col­lec­tion tran­si­tions be­tween weather con­di­tions, prov­ing that our sea­sons refuse to be de­fined from a dark and stormy set­ting to warm, siz­zling heat.

Ex­clu­sive Aus­tralian de­sign­ers fea­tured in­clude Karen Walker and Mac­graw, as well as Zim­mer­mann, Carla Zam­patti, Camilla, Lover, Ro­mance Was Born, Vik­to­ria & Woods, Camilla and Marc, Bec & Bridge and Dion Lee.

There are also in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers Valentino, Ba­len­ci­aga, Aquaz­zura, Frame, Chloe and Alaia.

Leather is on-trend this sea­son and does not just take the form of biker jack­ets, leg­gings and hand­bags.

The fabric has been given even more edge by be­ing pleated, in­cor­po­rat­ing cut-outs and adding coloured pan­els for a mo­tocross spin.

Pair edgy pieces with cot­ton for the day­time or wear head-to-toe for after-dark glam­our.

Denim em­braces luxe fin­ishes, 1970s flair and 1990s an­drog­yny, new per­son­alised styles with bro­cade, em­bel­lish­ment, vel­vet and ta­pes­try, ex­tend­ing into coats, dresses, bags and even boots.

These lat­est fash­ions are cer­tainly as ver­sa­tile and dy­namic as the cli­mate.
