Fashion Month has just started, but today I’m having a look at one of my favourite pre-fall collections, one that would be very relevant come spring as well. The Australian-born, Paris-based designer Martin Grant presented a beautiful line of classic and appealing shapes in hushed tones, like full skirts or palazzo pants paired with body-conscious turtlenecks that alternated with more streamlined silhouettes, a modern jumpsuit and a navy coloured, long-sleeved and mid-length (a detail that will continue to go strong for the next seasons it appears) fluid dress, cut just in the right places. It felt fresh and timeless.
I like the cinched silhouette, whether in the form of a contrasting animal print belt or especially an obi-style one, such a subtle yet effective detail to take a look up a notch.
