The length is settled: you’ll be in tea dresses and skirts next fall if you haven’t abandoned your mini things yet and if Victoria Beckham can persuade you, those silhouettes will be rendered in multiple forms of plaid, which can be traced back to some thick wool trousers for lobbyists against a lack-of-leg slit. In a metaphor: like Sheryl Holmes (Sherlock’s sister) had an affair with Cate Blanchett’s character in Carol and then cast a spell on her because, surprise!, she’s also a witch as evidenced by her choice in footwear.
Hey, what’s your sign? I ask because Edun’s runway wanted to know and according to it, the stars say blanket coats and buttons — really, everywhere — wide leg pants and matching jackets to plunge you forth. Coolest part of this show, though? The newborn who took a post-show bow. Aw.

If I had to give her a circumstance I’d assume she chooses dry erase markers over chalk every time but almost never uses either in spite of how frequently she’s schooling people on the art of looking great when it’s cold, sleek when stuff is messy and arguably most importantly, strong even while feeling weak. Hallelujah for great clothes.
