Fashion Week: Ports 1961

Fashion Notes: 
Fiona Cibani's winter collection for Ports 1961 showcased a futuristic combination of patchwork textiles and varied proportions. To be clear, when we say "future" we don't mean space-age strangeness. Imagine fashion today with a the envelope nudged forward. The result was a sophisticated elegance.



Key Looks:
Boxy, metallic leather shirts and dresses, along with tulip sleeved dresses and tops.

Silhouettes:
The look of the Ports 1961 woman is always sophistication. This season, the shape was a stiff rectangle sometimes created with a patchwork of textures and proportions.

Textiles:
Mink, cashmere, double faced virgin wool pieced and matched together for a modern sophistication.
