Nautica Fall 2014 is inspired by images of the frozen tundra, introducing modern performance fabrics and blending matte and shine in icy tones contrasted with deep mineral shades. The collection includes insulated fur trimmed parkas and functional pants such as pleated tech trousers, wool cashmere knit pants and wool mix sweat pants and a standout waxed cowhide cargo.
Several of my favorites include the asymmetrical zipfronts, mohair mix shawls and cashmere thermal cardigans. The looks have more of an urban luxe feel, with sweaters, vests, jackets and pants all appropriate for cold-weather climates, like the snowy winter we are having.
The runway show featured hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda, makeup by Janessa Pare for Aveda, shoes by Palladium & Vans and ski goggles by Zeal Optics.
