Frenetic and Sophisticated. Katharine Polk behind Houghton made really exciting Autumn-Winter collection, which consisted of elegant and luxe day and evening looks. As designer says in her blog: "This season I was inspired by the eccentric yet very chic elder women of the Upper East Side," meaning that even if you are 90 you still can evoke femininity and beauty, just take a look at these divas around the streets of Manhattan, so chic and confident. During the runway show models appeared in beautiful luxe garments with masculine details and ladylike fragility. My favorites are daywear silk charmeuse pantsuits, evening feather trimmed column dresses, slim pants, lace accented gowns, black cashmere overcoats, low slung skirts, pussy-bow blouses. I love Katharine's signature longer lengths, textural layering and modern colors. All in all, it's classic glamour, with fur, feathers, lace, and sequins.
