She’s Got Flare: Beaufille Fall/Winter 2017 NYFW

Runway, Men, Collections, Runway

Beaufille has long since been one of my highlights not just of New York Fashion Week, where the Canadian sister act just showed their Fall/Winter 2017, but of the entire fashion calendar. I blame their ability to make me swoon on their mastery of the dichotomy – their collections are constantly delightful feminine, but still have a tough edge of masculinity to it, mainly translated through sharp tailoring and a demure color palette. Their pieces are quirky, but refined. Sharply tailored, but still fluid and languid.

This season, this play between masculine and feminine saw a revival of the flares and bell sleeves of the last few seasons. Sharply tailored coats had exaggerated detailing – like ebbing sleeves and oversized collars, all in a deliciously murky olive shade. A mutton-sleeve top in an updated houndstooth was paired with a sheening patent a-line skirt. Billowing tunics, all hitting well below the knee, paired over equally as voluminous pants. Figure-hugging corsets, in almost an antique-looking glazed leather, constricted floating shift dresses.

I think I constantly fall head over heels for Beaufille because product offerings are always utterly unique, with this season being no different, but not in a head-turning, look-at-me way – their pieces have a certain understated beauty to them. This idea plays a lot into their identity as a brand – the Gordon sisters have created a harmonious combination of masculine and feminine. And it makes sense – Beaufille translates literally into ‘handsome girl’.
