There’s plenty to keep occupied this season with such great new content. All eyes are on the it piece of the month: a short, boxy jacket. Forest greens, leafy patterns and soft, comfortable fabrics that pair perfectly with sweet, feminine pieces make their début in the first pages of this issue. We then move on to the incredible collection of black on black. Fierce, stylish and elegant: what’s more to want? But, lo and behold! Terribly trendy pieces of tartan are an urban must for the autumn months. Quirky yet polished cuts are fused with bold patterns and fabrics. And for sizes 44-52, an intro to futuristic fashion that highlights all your natural assets thanks to a flirty blend of sporty chic and comfy textile. Your little ones will roar will joy as they wear these fun and playful animal prints paired with simple and easy cuts. The retro piece of the month? A breath-taking coat dress à la 1959 New York fashion scene. And last but certainly not least: a sublime evening dress from creator Irene Luft.

Retro Model and It Piece


Modèle rétro et it-pièce - Burda style novembre

 

Diversity is our mantra and here’s a worthy example this season: two contrasting pieces, both captivating in their own way! To the left is our retro model of the month. Christian Dior in 1959 New York inspires this gorgeous coat dress. Haute couture and simply elegant. To the right, the sporty jacket fit for any city slicker is our it piece of the month. Boxy and short, it brings us back to the quirky style so emblematic of the 70s. This model can be found in many popular ready-to-wear shops this season. We love it!

 

The Designer Creation


Pièce de créatrice   - Burda style novembre

 

We just can’t take our eyes off this majestic gala gown! This lovely piece is from designer Irene Luft, who created her own label ten years ago. Made from duchess satin, the bust of this stunning dress is a splendid work of pearled lace and features a striking neckline.

 

All these models can be found in the November issue, in stores since October 18!
