Coach 1941’s country girl takes a more sporty approach with A-line miniskirts in tapestry prints and felted woolens coordinating with jackets in leather and suede. Heeled loafers are trimmed with horsebit embellishment while metallic cowboy boots complete the look with attitude.

Tory Burch

Tory Burch a/w16

Tory Burch’s city-girl-in-the-field inspired autumn/winter show displayed a variety of equestrian jodhpurs and tassled suede ankle boots paired with color-blocked coats and skirts. A more urban version of a western country wardrobe.


Rodarte a/w16

Rodarte’s a/w16 show embodied a more gothic appeal with a touch of Native American flair. Clunky ruffled leather jackets, complete with gloves and belts teamed with ruffled calf-boots were a culmination of expert hand-craftsmanship kissed with an air of dark romanticism. 


Alice + Olivia a/w16

Stacey Bendet brings her playful eclecticism to Alice + Olivia’s latest collection with an army of flared trousers and geometric print maxi dresses in autumnal shades. Lurex knits and pussy-bow blouses, denim jackets and pleated leather skirts gave the lineup its western spirit.
