Judith & Charles elevates its position as a full lifestyle brand with its Fall 2015 collection, notably with sophisticated outerwear. Attention to detail is prominent and influences from the 70s are evident through the use of textured materials and unique patterns, coming together to create a stylish and versatile collection epitomizing the brand’s essence.
The collection opens with the sleek double-breasted Bisset Coat in a luxurious wool cashmere blend. The defining characteristic is the spicy rose colour selected to enhance the fabric’s richness. In the same material, the label offers the single-breasted Huston Coat, also tailored but this time in the season’s rich Vicuna colour. The chic Charlie Coat, crafted in compact wool boasts a cool allure in a looser fit with rounded shoulders. Finally, the label expands on casualwear with a beautiful beige and off-white combo cape, a fall favourite.
Subtle yet edgy details are highlighted throughout the collection, namely with the standout offering of new dresses. The Burton dress, offered in the brand’s signature crepe fabric sets the tone with graphic depth and Bordeaux colour blocking. In their renowned form-fitting silhouette, the Gia Dress combines navy and black, a leather waistband, and an exposed front zipper, making it ultra modern. The skirts are also distinctive as seen in the stripe tweed Maud skirt with precisely combined chintz details offered in a rich Bordeaux.
Also in Bordeaux, the plaid Khan jacket is designed with a leather collar, a fashionable take of the classic style. Other thoughtful inserts of leather, chintz and zipper details recur in the collection, as found on novelty knitwear.
A 70s influence is clear from the use of supple suede, printed silks and reminiscent shapes. In addition, the chevron pattern featured in the Johnson Jacket and the long sleeved Pam dress also takes inspiration from the fashionable decade. The mock neck Bowie Dress and Nicks pencil skirt offered both in suede and in a sublime dark green creates an uncompromised modern effect. Finally, flared pants are seen throughout the collection, a shape staying true to brand, a perfect fit.
Once again, Judith & Charles is proud to present an exquisite collection. The label’s ability to consistently offer elegant, stylish and easy to wear clothing, combined with their high quality fabrics and precise craftsmanship are the qualities that keep the contemporary woman wanting more.
