Outside the Lines:
Silhouettes Made Special
Photographed by Hanna Tveite
Artful seams. Dynamic darts. Invigorating asymmetry. Fall’s standout silhouettes bring the outside in, animating familiar shapes with the details of their construction, from the inverted-pleat culottes and strikingly ruched skirt of J.W. Anderson to Protagonist’s refined cocoon coat and paneled dress in crisp cotton shirting.
With the look of a tailored skirt and the ease of shorts, J.W. Anderson’s wool culottes update the staid reputation of houndstooth with a fringed waistband and sleek side pockets.
Inspired by artist Joseph Beuys (1921–1986), a champion of softly structured felt suiting, Protagonist’s double-faced coat envelops the body in soft yet substantial wool.

An elegant alternative to a coat, Vanessa Seward’s cape reverses from water-repellent Italian cotton gabardine to Glen-plaid Italian wool.
The fall Protagonist collection is a feminine fusion of functionality and sensuality, apparent in a dress of densely woven cotton shirting fabric shaped by precisely placed darts and seams.
