Chic Report: Against a barren forest stage with lights casting shadows of bare branches on the walls, models emerged with hair pulled back into long, wavy ponytails. Fur was omnipotent: frosted sable, nappa leather guanteria, bias-cut Persian, braided chinchilla, and molecular 24-carat mink. Mixing volume and proportions with a body-conscious feel, waists were cinched, skirts were above the knee, and shoulders were rounded and soft within the neutral, natural palette.
