Ports 1961 Fall 2012: Understated Elegance

Ports' forest green invite was certainly a promise of what was to come. Upon entering the show, set in the New York Public Library, the vibe, like the invites, was understated and elegant: Fashion industry insiders quietly made their way to the rows of benches lining a square runway, underneath a gorgeous skylight. The clothes matched the quiet stylishness of the space to every degree: The first looks--a set of boxy, metallic leather shirts and dresses--were gorgeous. A set of grey patchwork, fur coats that followed also worked: Beautiful, and expensive-looking without being ostentatious in the least.

Also good to know: The label shares our obsession with turtlenecks--they were poking out of everything in an array of shades from black, burnt orange and dark green. And the the roomy thigh-high boots in a similar palette also caught our eye.
