When I think of winter, I think of putting on a comfortable, old oversized sweater, staying inside with a good book (or a copy of the latest issue of FLARE), and watching the snow go by, but only from my window. Osklen designer Oskar Metsavaht clearly has the same idea, minus the staying in part. His collection includes many pieces that look like somebody’s old sweatshirt or wool sweater, but reworked into something to wear outside the house. Dresses and sweaters come in every colour, from green and red to blue and mustard yellow, and each of them has what looks like sweater sleeves tied either at the waist, for the illusion of belting, or at the neck, creating a high, face-covering collar. Heads are also covered in wig-like fur hats.

On the opposite end of the structure spectrum are Cori and Juliana Jabour. Both designers include perfectly tailored pieces in their collections, from long, men’s style jackets to full pantsuits. They also make sure to keep things feminine by pairing them with animal print and plenty of fringe (Juliana Jabour), and with short and pleated skirts with the occasional sheer back or hemline (Cori).
