David Dixon’s Fall 2012 runway show began with a clip from the iconic movie The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock, and the designer was also inspired by the Daphne de Maurier book of the same name during the design process. Consisting of tailored looks in a pared down palette of black, white and dark blue, the collection included fabrics such as a houndstooth jacquard alongside boiled wool and lace embroidered taffeta. Dixon deftly mixes textures to liven up classic silhouettes this season, especially in the sleek portion of daywear separates which opened the show. Highlights included the designer’s fitted silk peplum dresses, an oversized feather coat, and a cream wool coat edged in black lace.
