Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski broke free from obvious heritage and any equestrian ties – no riding nods, no horsey motifs – and instead hit upon an icy palette, from spearmint to peach sorbet coupled with house classics, like Bordeaux, navy, and black. Standouts included a hooded shearling jacket, an oversized dropped-shoulder khaki cable knit cinched with a wide leather belt, a bone-coloured long-sleeved leather dress that was so basic, but yet so pristine one could hardly imagine having to physically do anything in it (least of all actually leave the house and risk getting caught in a shower). There is just something about the leather here that feels and looks superior to any other.
There were sapphire mink vests, an ivory cashmere trouser suit that could literally take any woman anywhere for the rest of her life (this is a house that rises above the trends, it doesn’t follow them like a tick list) and swathes of grey cashmere layers from culottes to engineered kimono-sleeve dresses to cardigan jackets, every piece deliciously, gloriously luxe. And that’s before mentioning her series of palladium-studded suede designs. Exquisite.
