This season’s collection takes its inspiration in part from American gothic writers such as Edgar Allen Poe, who wrote “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” Of course his famed work “The Raven” also evokes the romantic sensibility we chose for fall, as seen on Olivia Wilde who wears the Habitual Amalia Skinny in Licorice in InStyle’s September issue.
The dawn sleeps behind the shadowy hills,
The stars hold their breath, counting the hours….
There is only your own pair of wings and the pathless sky,
Bird, oh my Bird, listen to me—do not close your wings.
