CLAN

I think I always talk about the impeccable tailoring of Clan, and this year is no different. This collection had a good number of olive green pieces, as well as reds, whites, teals, blues, tans, browns and blacks. The models were also stunning. Clan was playful with the buttons of some of its pieces, cutting the fabric and placing the buttons in an acute angular fashion, as well as with zips.  The fabrics included cotton, rayon, leather and all that good stuff.
