Elegance with Ease
There was a time when men and women dressed for
special occasions. Dining out was one such event, as
was going to the movies or having friends over for
a visit. Clothing this season, rich in color yet quiet in
its elegance, is reminiscent of the style of that era.
Deep jewel tones abound for fall, as seen in Harris
Wharf London’s royal aubergine overcoat or Sartoria
Partenopea's emerald and rust plaid sport jacket.
Fabrics are elegant to the touch, soft but sturdy, almost
bold in their subtlety. Cut comfortably close to the body,
this season’s clothing covers its wearer perfectly . . . . with
the subtle elegance of fall 2014.
