Is Amelia Earhart shaping up to be an early muse of the season? A girl in a vintage aviator cap had a trio of top street-style photographers swooning earlier in the week, while bomber jackets and full trousers have popped up in several shows—most recently at United Bamboo. A photograph of the famed pilot was indeed the influence for Miho Aoki and Thuy Pham's latest collection. "[It's] a tribute to a fearless, adventurous woman," Pham said.
You don't have to be a risk taker to pull off most of these looks, though. On offer were nicely tailored wool suiting jackets, draped silk dresses with bow details, and, yes, United Bamboo's take on a flight jacket (in wool with fur panels). Fall featured more menswear-inspired details than some of the duo's recent efforts. Aoki and Pham still maintained the sweetness inherent to the brand, but playing it off against more masculine silhouettes served to heighten the charm.
