They’re card-carrying members of the Information Era, but downtown designers returned to the Industrial Age for Spring, giving railroad stripes a modern makeover on their runways. Joseph Altuzarra whipped up tailored blazers and “editors’ capes” from the sturdy stuff and underscored its utilitarian appeal with patch labels that riffed on the traditional Carhartt logo. Still, as we put it on our review

In our “Model-Slash” series, Style.com profiles models whose ambitions and drive extend beyond the catwalk.
Growing up on a cattle ranch in rural Utah—in a town with a population of 200—gave Hannah Holman a backstory quite a bit different from most other models’. Not many girls, after all, can claim to have stalked and shot a mountain lion at the age of 13 (more on that later). Now 21, Holman is the face of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy fragrance and has graced Jacobs’ catwalks as well as walking for Chanel, Valentino, and Jonathan Saunders. Holman’s forte, however, is magazine editorials, and she’s done scores of those recently for publications like Elle France, W, Love, and V. “Being in front of the camera is very meditative and I just get into this zone,” she tells Style.com. “You feed off the energy of the photographer and the crew and have the freedom to move and transform.”
Holman was discovered in a local shopping mall when she was 15, and her rise in modeling was initially difficult for her family to grasp. “It’s a hard industry to understand, especially when you’re used to such a simple lifestyle,” she says. “Now they’re all very supportive. My dad, in particular, is always bragging about me to his hunting friends.” When she was younger, the two would ride the tractor around their 3,000-acre property, bringing out baled hay to the cows and rounding them up. Being an outdoorsy girl, Holman is naturally a seasoned horseback rider, too. “We would do cattle drives four or five times a year and go hunting in the fall, winter, and spring—usually for elk or deer,” she says. Her memorable cougar experience was a one-time thing, she explained, because the government permits only a few of the cats to be killed each year. “It’s a lottery system and my name was drawn by chance,” Holman said. “So we went out with a friend who is a hunting guide and knows exactly which peaks and little valleys they hang out in. Mountain lions often hang out up in trees but this one went into a cave. I was scared it was going to attack us and took a few shots with a .30-30 rifle but ran out of bullets, so my dad handed me his pistol and that was the lucky shot.” Holman returns home as often as she can to hit the trails with her family. “When I first left to model, I thought I’d never want to go back, and now when I’m there again, I appreciate it so much,” she says.

In Portland, you can put a bird on something and just call it art. In fashion, you put a bird on something and call it Miu Miu, Givenchy, or more recently, Burberry. Though Miuccia Prada and Riccardo Tisci were early adopters of the trend, we’re finding it’s still got legs—Christopher Bailey put an owl on several pieces in his Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 collection.

You can’t hide from camouflage this season. Much like leopard print, it’s appeared in innumerable incarnations over the years, but recently, designers have been taking fatigue-inspired ready-to-wear to new heights. During Resort, fresh takes on the pattern materialized at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Giambattista Valli, and Kelly Wearstler, and it came on particularly strong at the menswear shows. Model Miles Langford sported both high and low versions of the look, first wearing his own thrift-store find in the London streets, then a few days later, turning up on the Dries Van Noten runway in a matching windbreaker and button-up. Historically, camouflage was intended for disguise, but wearing the stuff, you’ll have a hard time blending in.
