Summary: Abaete as always was classic and beautiful coming down the runway–although this time her French feminine inspiration had some Middle Ages edge. Her elegant lines and silhouettes added draping, bell-sleeves and petticoats for glamour, but the pewter flower detailing and metal sequins added literal strength to the collection. Pair in some wide-leg trouser pants with fur-sleeved blazers and high-heeled booties, Abaete definitely divided and conquered.
