Gabriela Hearst Fall 2019 - Runway Review
February 12, 2019
Sophisticated tailoring has fast become a signature of Gabriela Hearst. With a collection launched just four years ago, and already benefiting from a minority investment from LVMH's venture arm, the designer is proof that sustainability is true luxury. From a recycled cashmere felt coat to a plied wool cashmere sweater, those with means are swiftly changing not only the way they dine and live, but dress as well.
Hearst's suits, in short, are fabulous. Chic without intimidating, they possess all the sartorial prowess her loyal clientele turn to her for. For fall they came sharply cut in double face cashmere accessorized with Uruguayan coin buttons. At times the collection felt so light as if to walk on air; the softness came through in the stitch virgin wool skirts and dresses rendered in calm shades of ivory and midnight blue while sumptuous dip-dyed sweaters were hand-knit by the Manos de Uruguay collection hailing from Hearst's home country. As for her sought-after accessories, Hearst's latest and greatest is a rose gold "phone case" with a clear panel that visibly displays the time.
