Wearable, on-trend clothes in luxe fabrics have been Standing Armed designer Lindsay Walsh's calling card since she debuted her label. Last week, she delivered an exquisite collection at Eco Fashion Week that had something for everyone while maintaining a cohesive design story (no easy feat, I assure you). The fact that the collection's palette seemed to be two sides of the same coin definitely helped: the light creams and pink-and-gold paisley jacquard print in the first half of the show, followed by darkier, moodier pieces in black and burgundy-and-gold brocade.
Fans of this season's baroque trend will be pleased to see Walsh incorporate the jacquard and brocade prints into tailored dress shorts, a shirtdress tunic with a high-low hem, patterned trousers, and a sleeveless top with a sharp geometric peplum. Those who are looking for sleek and simple separates to incorporate into their workwear will find plenty to love too: blouses, loose silk trousers, suiting, and an elongated menswear-inspired vest which looks so elegant loosely buttoned over an LBD. Meanwhile, the black silk jumpsuit strikes just the right minimalist cool-girl vibe, requiring only a change of accessories and shoes to be a versatile go-to outfit for parties.
