Farhi thinks of wardrobe options rather than sweeping collection statements or runway theatrics, and many British women rely on the attainable, everyday luxury of her sportswear. One of the label’s strengths is outerwear, which carried through for fall in a variety of neat-to-the-body coats and jackets, often trimmed with deep fur collars. Reversed rabbit-skin coats and distressed-leather jackets with puffy poacher pockets exude just the right note of casual confidence for busy female executives.
Farhi’s up-to-the-minute formulascropped pants and leather boots; a flippy pleated chiffon skirt worn with opaque tightsare timeless fall options for women who simply want to look right without trying too hard. Life is complicated enough as it is.
