My most highly anticipated show of the week did not disappoint. On the contrary, Peter Copping’s debut at the house of Oscar was an elegant affair. To say Mr. Copping has grand shoes to fill is an immense understatement.
Black as a fashion statement, particularly one for fall? Like with florals for spring, one could cuttingly reply, “How groundbreaking.” While revolutionary it may not be, that doesn’t mean catching sight of an all-black collection, or several, is not a breath of fresh (albeit, dark) air…
