BY MALENE BIRGER
Malene Birger’s Fall lineup featured contemporary takes on traditional, feminine suiting and pencil skirts, as well as embellishments and velvet for evening. Everything was geared toward her loyal band of followers—mainly, young ladies who work hard, play hard, and tend not to stray too far from current trends. There were velvet track pants paired with bejeweled sleeveless tops and mid-length puffers and textured overcoats, some with scarves tied like obi belts around the shoulders. Birger also showed a diverse range of practical day bags that included everything from an oversize black pleather messenger to a red snakeskin top handle.
