Veronique Branquinho fall 2000-01
This collection intends to present classical fabrics - which are considered as timeless and old fashioned - in a new and modern way. By mixing tailored pieces in Prince of Wales, Herringbone, pied-de-poule and gun club fabrics, with enlarged hounds tooth and herringbone detailed knitwear, a youthful silhouette is created.
Knee length skirts with double hem are presented with woollen leggings in jacquard jersey and heavy knitwear tops or feminine silk blouses. Masculine but elegant tweed trench coats with contrasting fabric on the collar are mixed with wide and straight checked pants. Skirts and pants have sophisticated detailing such as a smoking or a plaited belt. Other striking details include bat-wing sleeves cut with a narrow shoulder and long jumper dresses worn with pants. As for coats, they are long and wide with pleated back, or collarless with a large volume on the body and straight on the hips. Turtlenecks are worn under woollen shirts with a woollen or silk neckerchief. Above these pieces a vest and undercoat are presented.
