Summary: Hard rock meets everyday glamour at Mackage. Mackage was created with the idea that outwear is an integral part of fashion and that one must layer their clothing. And when one does layer, it becomes the outfit itself. Designers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan created a land of both layering feminine silhouettes with leather jackets.

The best thing about the collection was the fact that everything was so wearable. There was no need to have a special occasion to purchase one of their pieces as it can just be ready for a night on the town. I thought that the leather fingerless gloves were a nice touch on some of the pieces. It helped give some of the more feminine outfits a harder edge.
