News__ NYFW: Heather Lawton F/W ‘13
Worth the hunt
Heather Lawton’s fall/winter 2013 collection is a manifestation of Lawton’s come up. Born in Canada, Lawton was a zealous horsewoman involved in global showcases. After hopping off the saddle to focus on fashion, Lawton moved to NYC to fine tune her craftsmanship. The effect is women’s clothing for New York City nightlife engulfed by forest--think little red riding hood all grown up, trading her picnic basket for designer purse. Only you wont find much red here, as the collections palette is utterly midnight. Woodsy capes, asymmetrical draping, hanging wools, and lush-from-life textures such as furs and leathers set the foundation for Lawton’s dark and elegant fairytale.
