With military elements bridled by leather harness details (harnesses designed by Alexandra Abraham), Simona Semen’s autumn / winter 2013 collection could feel austere. But nothing is too stuffy when balanced by femininity, as Semen’s looks inevitably are. Army green coats are embellished with lace embroidery, heavy coats sit atop full, tulle-trimmed skirts; and the sparkle of metallics makes even all black pieces shine with a vintage-inspired glamour.
The unpretentious yet beautiful rooms of a interbellum period home provide the ideal backdrop for the collection’s campaign, infused – as Semen’s campaigns tend to be – with a Parisian grace.
