Summary: Australian designer Kit Willow chose loose and flowing leather and silk as the basis of her collection. The title to this review came from the person sitting next to me after seeing the final few black wool pieces with what appeared to be mirror chards strewn at the hem. Personally, I rather liked it. Willow manipulated leather into razor thin, shiny dresses that had movement which one might not expect from the material. The color palette was a little too muted at times, but the collection was very casual chic.

Color Palette: beige, tan, taupe, brown, orange, cinnamon, olive, sapphire blue, gold, black

Textures & Details: silk, silk charmeuse, cotton, wool, knit, thin lambskin, stretch leather, leather, thigh high lace up boots in tan and grey, gold zippers, hammered brass, mirror appliques
