Farm to Fashion
Photos by Simon Hurst
The finest of fashion is adaptable to all settings. It makes a seamless transition from urban sophistication to pastoral charm. This season’s colors and textures create looks that are equally fabulous in city or country. We prove the point with a fall fashion trip down the road, leaving behind the city lights – but not elegance and style.
Fall’s fashions always bring the promise of cooler weather to come. The mood is adult and polished with rich colors and a great mix of textures and fabrics. We find this season’s fashions to be pleasing to everyone.
