Here she used sweatshirt fabrications with contrasting leather and fur panels for a look that was linear yet less unforgiving while slightly louche.

Her first use of fur thanks to a collaboration with Saga furs was counterbalanced by a clever use of faux leather and faux fur that somehow worked alongside the real-deal while hitting a competitive range of price-points and aesthetics.
From leather shorts to one legged "leggings" to druid hooded toppers, this collection is destined to have something every girl won’t want to take off all season. — Naveed Hussain, VagabondNYC
