Summary: 'Practical' was the watchword of Mackage's first runway show, and while it's not a word associated with high praise in the fashion industry, it's just right for an outerwear collection… especially in this economy. Known for warm, beautifully designed coats, Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan kept things on the simple side, adding interest with asymmetrical zippers, deconstructed leggings, oversize fur mittens and leather boot covers. Attention to details is what elevates the collection: an a-line here, a bell sleeve there and fitted puffy coats that manage to look ski-bunny chic instead of State Puff Marshmallow—all proof that fashion doesn't have to take a dive when the temperature does.

Color Palette: off-white, peacock, camel, coco, black 

Fabrics & Textures: leather, wool, fur, cashmere, shearling

Key Looks: camel Toscana shearling coat with asymmetrical zipper, coco leather boot covers; off-white wool/cashmere coat with open neck collar and pleated sleeves; black lace bonded wool cape with tiered sleeves
