Doused in hues nearly entirely monotone of black, white and gray, sleek gray and black hues, outerwear arrived in the form of patchworked coats featuring a zebra print, while tweed jackets were layered over multicolored ruffled dresses.
Other standouts included a wool jacket with inexplicably long sleeves and oversized hip seams, a dress with leather puff sleeves, as well as a jacquard dress with over-the-top tailoring. Elsewhere, the brand has debuted its Pulsar Platform collaboration with Salomon. The Pulsar Platform is a brand new model with a platform sole making full use of Salomon’s cutting-edge technology.
