Whitney Pozgay's fledgling WHIT line is quickly carving out a niche in the contemporary world with retro-classic staples like pleated skirts, tie-neck blouses, and shift dresses. This season's collection was inspired by a young Marianne Faithfull, which translated into a very '60s-mod interpretation of her signature pieces. There were interesting, rich textures like metallic coating on wool and cutout detailing around the hem of a dress, complemented by animal-print haircalf accessories. Also spotted: the first (and surely not the last) peplum skirts of the season. Mina & I were particularly taken with the pleated leather skirt and ruffled shift dress pictured here.
Mina hates it when I ask her what she thought of a show and then quote her here, so I will let her file names speak for themselves: The first picture below is called "nunchuks1" and the second is "smoulder1". My take: Gilded Age's clothes are cool enough that they don't need to resort to weird theatrics like props and Blue Steel. As for the collection, according to the show notes, it was inspired by a post-apocalyptic metaphorical journey—I'll let you digest that one for a bit.
