I loved the dark glamour of Pink Tartan’s Fall 2013 collection, all elbow-length gloves, sexy, saturated hues and abstract florals. Before the show, I chatted with
designer Kim Newport-Mimran about her sultry vision for fall.
THE MUSE "I always pick a muse for every collection, and for fall, my muse was Constance Langdon from
American Horror Story mixed in with Marnie Edgar from Hitchcock days. The darkness is in the clothes, but it’s also underlying in the girl, the muse herself. "
THE CLOTHES "I’m still liking a longer skirt length. I love a waisted jacket—I haven’t really been blazer-y for awhile, you’ll see a lot of cape action happening. Those are the key silhouettes. I’m using real camel hair, metallics, a little bit of a PJ silhouette.  I really put an emphasis on fur this season. I love the sophistication of it—it’s a lot of glamorous than my rock star fur from previous seasons."
