Tailoring takes a sculptural turn for next fall. Arms are rounded, torsos are nipped, shoulders are draped and hips are molded. Fabrics with body are essential, often reinforced with padding, facing, plastic coatings or clever cuts. Simple menswear tweeds or plaids give ballast to these somewhat avant-garde shapes, making them more approachable.
The leopard coat, an outerwear staple of fashion icons and influencers, emerges as a key item this season in a variety of iterations. Updated silhouettes include oversized duffels, trim trenches, and patchwork furs, while classic tailored versions are still relevant. Additional newness comes from exaggerated proportions and stylized motifs, some featuring colorful overdyes or pattern mix.
