THE OUTBACK REIGNS IN A RUGGED TEXTURE AND COWBOYS MAP THE ROUTE TO MEET WILD AT THE WESTERN FRONT.
Peau de vache hails studded luxury sheen at Valentino where a trench coat is cut with a swift swipe of the chic outer hand. Styled with cowboy boots, black leathers and lace, a nouveau Victoriana emerges from beyond the rodeo. Lanvin has woven in fringes that traverse nomadic lines, tasselled with suede and studded leather for a bohemia-crossed desert trek. Embroidery and tattered edges have Gucci’s girls traveling towards the Eastern lines like a back trail escape. The classic piped western shirt takes tailoring for a round. Denim has this cowboy in solitary status, and suddenly she’s off the ground in metallic J.W. Anderson golden ruffled heels that have a step to thrill. Marni crops halters to a wide legged pivot and her pony haired bomber joins with a neck scarf for city slicking. More lace at Elie Saab, the romantic west finds a match on the wild side of rugged lines.
