Retail shops Wallis of UK draw inspiration from two
distinctive trends for Autumn/Winter 2005, fusing old-world Russian style
with grown-up Edwardian elegance. This military line coat below is not
just a black coat, but is made in luxurious velvet. Velvet is the
fabric of fall 2005.
Wallis Autumn/Winter 2005 Fashion Trends
Outerwear makes a strong statement this season with chic wool
capelets in cream or red and black military frock coats.
Travel back to the decadent Edwardian era with floaty
chiffon blouses in whites, creams and ivories for a truly
up-to-the-minute look. Wear a crisp white shirt and
jeans, or dress up a long ruffle or lace skirt with a jewel-trimmed
skirts, fitted waistcoats and lace-up round-toe boots finish the outfit,
or opt for a vintage silhouette with the tiered lace ribbon skirt and
sculptured corset top. The sense of wearable elegance continues
Wallis eveningwear in luxurious fabrics on this page.
Gathered-sleeved peasant blouses in deep berry colours
are key and are worn with slim-fitting black trousers, a wide
leather tooled belt and the must-have sheepskin gilet.
Casual Wear has an
Eastern European feel, with
influences taken from the wilds of Mongolia and Siberia ,in a rich
collection combining embellishment and decorative print. Wrap up
warm in chunky fair isle blanket cardigans teamed with dark denim jeans.
