Back to a less-is-more attitude right after the Zimmermann's madness in New York, last February, as Sally Lapointe made a point to bring to the table minimal, unfussy clothes that still manage to be pretty amazing. Overall, it did feel like classic Sally but the point of differentiation in her Fall/Winter 2015 collection is, first and foremost, that it is a collection about movement, inspired by German choreographer Pina Bausch. As a former student of the National Ballet School, you can imagine how that completely strived my attention; I always found there was something different about German ballet technique, something stunning and whimsical that combines natural talent, strength and timelessness. Lapointe really showed something that was quite close to this vision of perfection in my opinion and I did enjoy myself a lot watching how she explored texture in an even bigger way, pairing felted wool with mink fur, leather with denim and viscose with pony hair !

Sleek and very to-the-point garments such as wide leg trousers, cocoon coats, A-line skirts,  cargo jumpsuits and sleeveless sweaters contributed to make this collection the huge success that it's going to be in two seasons, and although Sally Lapointe didn't always subscribe to such a minimalistic approach, she knew she was onto something when designing one of Bergdorf Goodman's best-seller last year. Her line of fur-accented sweater sold out so fast, we didn't even had time to actually get excited about it ! Its was in and out, and remained in because so exclusive. Kind of makes me want to purchase every single tops from this upcoming collection, just in case, this time around ;)

Standout looks for me were the French gray double face wool cocoon coat detailed with a giant fox stole, over black stretch denim pants; the mustard washed dyed silk drape dress accessorized with a silverblue mink/gray wool cowl scarf and a oversized clutch; and the cream felted cashwool sweater, marbled embroidered stitch fringe skirt and cream python bag. The Fashionista would opt for the furry first option, the glamorous city-girl for the colourful second's and the modern woman for the monochrome final option.

Models wore their hair styled in textured ponytails with Oribe Hair Care products and wore a custom gray nail polish by Morgan Taylor. Runway glam by M.A.C. Pro Team.
