Gabriela Hearst Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 12, 2020
"Repurpose with a purpose." Gabriela Hearst adopted a non-wasteful mindset for her fall collection -- both from the clothes themselves to the show space, what with their shredded paper bales doubling for makeshift walls and decor. Recycled cashmere re-printed with animal prints and in solid colors for the outerwear complemented hand-knitted dresses, hand-painted leather coats and Turkish kilim rugs re-pieced as outerwear (we loved the double-breasted peacoat!). The emphasis on fabric development was a brilliant exercise in responsible luxury. The particularly strong lineup ran the gamut from tailoring to hippie-esque separates, many fashioned from a new cashmere corduroy. The idea was making waste beautiful -- and it worked beautifully.
