Looks from Hailwood’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection. Images supplied.
Designer Adrian Hailwood recently launched his new Autumn/Winter 2019 collection and it’s truly swoon-worthy. Hailwood showed this gorgeous range on the runway at New Zealand Fashion Week 2018 and we were smitten with its luscious fabrics and sublime silhouettes. The designer has mastered the art of creating divine eveningwear that is not only eye-catching but utterly flattering and comfortable to wear.
This collection has everything a Hailwood fan is looking for in the cooler months with chic daywear that encompasses tailored trousers, charming tops and elegant jackets. Not to mention plenty of cosy knits with the designer’s favoured graphic motifs, this time prowling pumas, cougars and bears are the focus. Throw a plaid or sequinned bomber jacket over the top and you have Hailwood’s brand of cool nailed.
But let’s get back to that magnificent eveningwear which drew audible sighs of delight on the runway last year. Sequins, satin and velvet make for winsome choices in styles that draw their inspiration from the old school glamour of Hollywood but with modern touches that appeal to today’s woman. Whether floor-sweeping grandeur is your style or you prefer a sleek fitted pencil skirt, there are alluring looks to appeal to many tastes. That’s not forgetting the delicately pretty floral embroidered pieces that would make for wonderful dressed-up daywear too. Hailwood really does deliver on stunning looks that will make you feel like a star.
