Kit Willow’s collection was all about asymmetric cuts, exquisite tailoring, and sky- high boots. The line showcased loose frocks that somehow looked fitted. Her collection filled a void in the ready to wear lines by effortlessly transitioning from day to evening without skipping a beat.

The dresses and separates had an airy quality that lived in the grey, nude, black, and burnt orange color palettes. The hues were clearly fall focused, but nothing looked heavy. Breezy skirting, wide leg pants, and cardigans created movement that was echoed throughout the entire collection. The clothing was toughened up with distinctive hardware in the corset lacing, zippers, and grommets. These repeated elements were the small details that defined the collection and made it clear that this Australian import will be on the short list New York fashionistas.
