Emma Berg goes through a transformation every season - and though the aesthetic of the collection changes, one thing remains: never skimping on the details. From what I can make of the preview pieces, this season's collection is moody, with a sense of regal elegance. She paired rich fabrics (navy, leather, taffeta) with masks made by Jesse Draxler (godfather of collages) using photographs of models' hands taken by Madison Dube. Essentially, the perfect addition to Emma's collection as it added just the right amount of interest and edge. As a huge fan of midriff-baring, my favorite of the night was easily the velvet crop top and asymmetrical floral skirt combination.
As for Highcroft Merch, conveniently located in the Graves Hotel (down the street from my work), my affinity for men's boutiques says that this will be new my lunchtime jaunt.
Emma Berg's full collection is debuting tonight at the Dress Rehearsal Benefit at the MIA - see you there. xx
