Emilia Wickstead’s muse for fall was cast straight out of one of Wes Anderson’s quirkily melancholic films. The palette in particular was an ode to “The Grand Budapest Hotel” – all buttery creams, powdery blues, confectionery pinks, soft grays and gilded rust checks, punctuated with occasional injections of black and red.
Wickstead is famous for her dresses, which have been worn by everyone from Samantha Cameron to Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung, and this season’s were as demurely stylish as ever. Hers are ladylike silhouettes designed for women with aristocratic inclinations. This season, they had high necklines and long sleeves, and came in Wedgewood blue crepe, gray tweed or in a pink and lavender geometric print.
But it wasn’t all politeness. A particularly saucy S&M shiny black leather dress was pure dominatrix glamour.
