IF THERE ARE TWO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE HALLIE SARA SS18 COLLECTION BEST, IT WOULD BE LUXURIOUS AND COVETABLE.

The label, based in New York City has always prided itself with luxurious, wearable pieces that work for every occasion from office to after party and the typical night out. Since the brand’s first debut in 2011, a lot has changed. While the remarkable handicraft and use of excellent materials uphold Haute Couture tradition, her garments are praised by fashion lovers for being casual and suitable for every day.

While her AW17 collection was all about richness and fur as the signature fabric, this time Sara’s collection turned out to be all about interchangeability. With 32 looks cat walking the runway, the collection split into two themes, with each of them smoothly transitioning into the other. First, came sheath dresses, in sand-dune tones and transparent silk fabric, followed by plaid shirt dresses in camel hues with a dropped waistline.

Scarfs coming in Lavallières reminded of the 50’s iconic ‘Preppy’ style. Either worn loose or casually in a bow, looks were accompanied by stiletto ankle strap heels in earthy browns. Both made the signature accessories of the collection. Regarding beauty, looks were defined through naturality, consisting mainly of the foundation, highlighter and a 90s’ glossy lip.

From dresses, Hallie Sara’s collection slowly transitioned into the second theme, with black head-to-toe looks and a more dominant style. Tie waist jackets styled with wide-legged culottes, grey silk tops mixed up with flattering skirts; all came in a sheer fabric on tops combined with leather. Collars represented modernity and appeared in sailor form and adapted pussy bows.

Mysterious and magnificent like Alexander McQueen and loose and casual chic like Stella McCartney; Hallie Sara’s SS18 collection had a mixture of both. Accentuated waists and etui dresses proved that femininity was at the core of the brand. The signature look of the collection was an example of that; a crocodile optic bustier, with a silk maxi skirt and a sand dollar gold coat worn on shoulders. Haute Couture can be casually worn, and Hallie Sara has just made it real.
