Harare Fall/Winter 2015


One look at Harare's fall 15 collection and you'll see that this New York-based label wants to envelope her woman with beautiful knitwear for the season. Inspired by a recent trip to Peru where the knits are made, their yarns come from the country's highlands and offer warmth, durability and an incredibly soft hand. Large baby alpaca scarves, shawls, capes and jackets lend themselves to layered looks that can be draped to perfection. Designer Caroline Fuss says she's focused on dressing real women. She knows that they travel and yearn for versatile pieces with rich fabrics and styles that are both comfortable and relaxed.

A standout is their batik story which began with a local artist in Sri Lanka that took the traditional technique and modernized it to work on everything from a polished button down shirt to an effortless pant and blouse. You'll also see a sophisticated play on a suede patchwork jacket and skirt while other versatile silhouettes are done with an artistic flair so whether she's near or far from home, there's always chic options.
