Established in 1892, Weill- Paris’ oldest fashion house- has allowed us a sneak peak of its upcoming Autumn/Winter collection 2013.
The collection features striking animal print pieces. Garments using this timeless pattern add a bold and sexy element to any outfit. Weill models their large leopard print pieces teamed with neutral colours to create a smart and sophisticated, yet also young and on trend look. A particularly stunning collaboration is seen with the loose fitting leopard suit trousers and oversized beige coat.
There is a smart, office-wear vibe permeating through the collection; tailored loose fitting trousers are a staple in many outfits showcased. These are collaborated with collared jackets or coats, and always a pair of pointed toe low heels.
One could interpret an androgynous theme running through the look-book, all items are loose fitting and boldly cut. Most items are plain, if not their patterns are sharp and geometric emitting a confident persona as well as an absence of girly embellishments.
As with the leopard print trousers, most outfits are centred around a statement. Whether it be a colour or a detail such as a belt buckle or the leather trim of a gorgeous blazer-style coat.
The collection is unquestionably sleek and cool. It oozes confidence and encourages boldness through an embracement of masculine cuts.
