Porter Grey Fall 2012: Frontier References and Lovely Leather

Fairchild Archive

The Scene: Designers (and sisters) Alexandra and Kristen O'Neill drew inspiration from Native American textiles and prairie imagery, but they wisely chose not to take their theme too literally. In keeping with their polished and feminine aesthetic, every piece they showed for fall was utterly wearable, not to mention completely covetable.

The Soundtrack: Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire."

The Look: Crisp coats and pleated dresses in shades of burgundy, black and goldenrod. Leather was the duo's material of choice, used in everything from shorts to skirts to entire dresses. And that Native American inspiration shone through via a tribal-style burgundy and blue pattern worked into cocktail dresses and outerwear.

Pieces We Want: A pair of leather-pocketed, zip-front shorts would make for a perfect weekend staple, and a navy coat inset with cranberry-colored blanket stripes was beautifully sharp.
