Velvety suits, wool peacoats, an off-white Crombie coat, lambswool jackets, chunky knit sweaters, fluid T-shirts in washed silk and, for extra pizzazz, a leopard-printed jacket were drawn up with fabrics sourced from wherever they’re made best — here was a suede from Italy and an army fabric from England; there, velvet from Japan and mohair from France. These fabrics, combined with the perfected cuts, made for an appealing, timeless feel to it all.
