Ashton Hall’s collection is a European inspired line that succeeds primarily because of its modern look, interesting color palette (rich onyx, blue diamonds and deep rubies) as well as the way individual pieces are worn. A midnight blue denim jacket with matching pant is paired with a black paisley shirt or an ivory leather jacket is contrasted against a chocolate cashmere sweater and capped by an ivory pony skirt.
The collection labored a little because of the number of pieces shown and it was a little faulty at times because the emphasis was on the perfect mix and match. Nonetheless, it allowed for anyone to find a favorite piece. The sweaters were some of our favorites as were the jackets. A chocolate leather jacket with fox collar, paired with an ivory cashmere vest and chocolate double layer suede skirt with beaded hem was a showstopper! Hall’s attention to detail were on full display and he did not disappoint.
