Collection autumn/winter 2017
Veronique Leroy’s autumn/winter 2017 collection was a real eighties revival. It was certainly one you had to interpret in a definite way, focusing on Leroy’s vibrant use of fabrics and dapper craftsmanship. Crushed velvet, the highlight of the collection, was featured on jumpsuits, dresses and thigh-high boots in a rust-brown or shocking pink. High-waisted trousers and mini skirts were crafted from smocked-spandex-like fabrics in a fresh, intense green. Statement buckle belts cinched close-fitted one-piece suits with turtle-necks. Shearling coats and multicoloured tweed-inspired jackets formed the perfect autumn/winter layering, whereas the cropped oversized sweaters and vests, defined by dropped shoulders and billowing sleeves, sent the silhouettes out for a flashback in time.
