MB Fashion Week: Jill Stuart

Ladylike elegance, structure, sophistication, and poise– I would expect nothing less from this Pret-a-porter brand. But this season, Jill Stuart has a noticeably darker palette and desert inspired prints. Shift dresses with artistic scenes of foxes and owls in the desert mixed with color blocking and fur pieces. A few of the same colors we have been seeing this week showed up in this collection; chalkboard green, brick red/orange, and safron yellow. The combination of a disco gold with the tonal colors in the color block dresses was unique for this collection. I also really enjoyed her use of leather mixed with suede combination of pleats with vertical line prints– it really brought the whole collection together.
Favorite piece: a firey red, wide skirt sleeveless dress with bow off center at the waist and paired with a fur scarf and tan wool fingerless gloves
Celebrities at the show: Mena Suvari, Nigel Barker, Rachel Zoe’s old left hand man Brad Goreski, and Alexa Ray Joel (offspring to Kristi Brinkley and Billy Joel).
