Allude Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2013 Paris

For Andrea Karg, cashmere’s versatility provides plenty to experiment with, and for her third show on the Paris schedule, the German designer took her base material to new heights with a fall collection that spoke of urban elegance, and in which she included her first menswear silhouettes to be shown on a runway.

Earth tones of russet and moss green complement with urban petrol blue, putty, cream and beige, but also more vivid blue and purples gave Karg’s Allude definite allure, particularly when paired with another of Karg’s favorites, leather. It telegraphed a town and country allure, reinforced by the relatively natural outlook of material, worked through collaborations with artisans and paired with accessories made by historic German brand Roeckl. A deep petrol blue supersedes black as a neutral, as a slick A-line skirt flowing out from a thick knit.

Fur used sparingly gave a luxurious touch to a vest worn with a sheer/opaque skirt. While her woman is all for simple tailored shapes that speak of urban grace, her man favors a dressed down look, wide leather straight legged trousers and crew cut sweater, sockless feet in slip-on shoes.

“As a brand, if you can make it in Paris, you can make it anywhere,” once said Karg during an interview late last year. With this collection’s material pairings and her simple but luxurious aesthetics, Karg shows that she’s not just a one trick pony –or cashmere goat – and that she could very well keep her cashmere empire on the fashion map as much as she has put it on the retail map.
