Feature zips are key for A/W 11/12.
Feature zips are key for A/W 11/12. On the catwalks, zips were left undone to highlight construction and draw attention to the back view. Skirts and dresses with zippered slits (see Victoria Beckham) allow the wearer to control how much they reveal.
Delicate contrast-coloured zips add interest to serious tailoring pieces, whereas heavier industrial silver zips add a more directional sportswear edge (see Costume National).
We love how Alexander Wang updated the overcoat by creating a hybrid that fused tailoring with bright yellow nylon pockets edged with exposed zips.
