Question of the Day
A black halter maxi dress, a waves-and-orchid print peasant blouse and the poncho worn over a tie-neck blouse and Bermudas all channeled the relaxed style of a woman unconcerned about her BlackBerry or iPhone _ if she even owns one or knows what it is.
But the inspiration here wasn’t sheltered or old-fashioned, either: While Reese’s muse fully embraces the season’s relaxed silhouettes _ right down to the floppy hats _ she also wears leather bra tops and a perforated halter dress.
DIESEL BLACK GOLD
Flowing rock goddess dresses and tomboy suede jackets in neutral khaki, rich browns and camel were set against the sunny New York City skyline for the earthy Diesel Black Gold presentation.
Leaf motifs more suited to autumn popped up on tailored leather jackets with crosshatched seams, and in fringe overlay on short dresses and flowing longer versions topped with tight, edgy leather bodices anchored by braided straps.
Diesel called the collection an ode to the wild creativity of the West Coast arts and crafts movement, the free spirit of rock festivals and the sun-drenched landscapes of California, as seen through the eyes of designer Sophia Kokosalaki.
