Get Waisted

Whether but­toned, belted or zipped, higher cuts con­tinue to rise for the au­tumn sea­son

Hong Kong Tatler - - News -

Skyscrap­ingly high and slimly struc­tured— this sea­son calls for brave new heights, and for once we’re not talk­ing about shoes. As pro­por­tions have short­ened and de­sign­ers have taken a trip back in time, the ’70s high-waisted sil­hou­ette has risen to new ex­tremes. Is­abel Marant has fo­cused on re­shap­ing the fem­i­nine sil­hou­ette by rais­ing the waist and in­sert­ing belted fea­tures over tucked-in, re­laxed tops for fur­ther ac­cen­tu­a­tion. Height­en­ing the sig­na­ture fem­i­nine look, the ul­tra-high-waisted pants were a cinch for So­nia Rykiel’s new cre­ative di­rec­tor, Julie de Li­bran (au­tumn 2015 marks her third col­lec­tion for the Parisian la­bel). But­tons climbed their way to the top of wide-leg sil­hou­ettes that latched onto fig­ure-flat­ter­ing tops. Just re­mem­ber not to “waist” this op­por­tu­nity, so tuck in tai­lored tops to cre­ate an hour­glass shape. Clock­wise from top: Mod­els back­stage at Is­abel Marant; belt by Lan­vin; ear­rings by Chris­tian Dior; boot by Lan­vin; look by So­nia Rykiel; hand­bag by Chloé
