Since its debut in 2011, the New York City luxury label Hallie Sara has gained a devout following in the industry. Celebrating the brand’s London Fashion Week debut, designer Hallie Sara showcased her Autumn/Winter collection in the Freemason’s Hall at the Fashion Scout and had audiences on the edge of their seats.
The sumptuous collection showed a unique approach to high-end fashion, combining ready-to-wear with contemporary luxury designs. Solemnly handcrafted from the finest materials and inspired by a colour pallet reaching from beautiful bold earth shades to a variety of jewel tones, the AW17 collection mostly consisted of real leather and fur designs.
Hallie combined traditional silhouettes with unique fabric manufacturing: A skin-tight black snake leather dress was the closing look of this show and a great highlight that kept cameras in the audience flashing. Real fur took an immense part in this collection. Fur hats, gilets, jackets and full-length coats added an interesting contrast to the leather designs and kept the collection as a whole well balanced.
