Emu Australia Fall 2011

For Emu Australia’s first New York Fashion Week runway show, the look was cozy from head to toe with its signature luxe sheepskin outerwear and boots. Known for its footwear, the company is getting more serious about apparel, interpreting the natural material in knee-length coats that wrapped and zipped, asymmetric hip-length jackets and belted wrap vests. This fall, layering took center stage with sheepskin pieces worn over merino wool sweaters, cardigans and hoodies, all in an earthy color palette of cream, wheat, sand and black. Boots went way behind Emu’s bread-and-butter surfer styles to include looks with belt treatments down the back, button-up versions and over-the-knee styles.
