"She's smart and not concerned with being beautiful, but she is beautiful," said Michelle Smith of her contemporary customer. While the Milly
girl may not be concerned with her looks, she does care about being stylish and, according to Smith, "shops pre-fall for fashion pieces as well as essentials." In the smart basics category were tapered and cropped trousers (an of-the-moment silhouette) and a soft black leather pencil skirt. As for the fashion, Smith showed a not-your-grandmother's-tweed jacket trimmed in leather and tricked out with metal tips at the base of the zipper, as well as a flattering sheath dress that mixed two kinds of custom French tweed with a "gumball" lace. Feathered skirts and whimsical owl-print separates were a total hoot.
