Women’s Trend: Gray Area

A melange of charcoal shades and textural play give a new tonality to fall looks. Plush calf hair and shearling from 10 Crosby Derek Lam and Pierre Hardy introduce a new frisson to menswear-inspired flats. Gray animal prints add interest to sleek slip-on boots from Louise et Cie and Freda Salvador. Even sneakers — which lately have taken a loud approach — embraced this subtly chic trend at Giuseppe Zanotti Design and Cynthia Vincent.
