Inspired by a portrait of Gervasio Artigas, the Uruguayan revolutionary leader and the figure of the Gaucho (a skilled horsemen), considered the father of Uruguayan independence, done by the painter Juan Manuel Blanes but also by a snapshot of the designer’s father on a rare trip to Manhattan, both were the gauchos of Uruguay, the collection embodied the essence of a winter spent on the east coast. Gabriela Hearst bet a lot this season on layering as well as on recycled materials like cashmere felt, houndstooth wool, cashmere, and silk. These comfort-breathing materials and plain or checkered patterns brought a certain sensibility of softness to the touch of clothes while the palette was rich in autumn colors such as navy, bottle green, copper, scarlet, and deep Bordeaux.
