For her second collection for Erro, fashion’s new rocker, Anna Larson, flashed out thirteen female warriors all clad in black and looking ready to kill (we just mean aesthetically, don’t worry!). Working with an entirely black palette, Larson delved into a wide variety of fabrics, straddling between gothic ferocity and feminine tenderness. The Erro assassin was armored in metal-looking corsets (bulletproof, too, perhaps?), over-the-knee boots, shoulder pads and striated leggings. But amidst the gladiator gear were also knit leggings, fur, ragged tops. The result was a sexy, gothic warrior dressed to slash and seduce. Even if she isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll still find the collection’s individual pieces alluring and its skillful mix and match inspiring.

At Rachel Comey, the mood was vastly different — lighter, cozier, and despite the vestiges of the blizzard the night before, warmer. Prints have always been her forte, so as anyone would suspect, they were everywhere in the collection: on high-waisted pants, between plain stripes of bright colors, on see-through pants beneath cocktail dresses, on satin blouses. Also typical of Comey was the vintage influence, as seen from her usual quirky layering. Whether you’ll be taking her cue to pair oxfords with socks or layer a plain sweater with a printed collared shirt, you’re bound to find some funky, head-turning prints from this collection to brighten up your dreary winter.
