Saks Potts Copenhagen Fall 2022 Collection
Catherine Saks and Barbara Potts know how to put on a show. Last season they presented their collection at the private home Arne Jacobsen built for himself; today they invited guests to Copenhagen’s modern opera house, where models descended zigzagging staircases of glass and marble as the sun poured in. The tony setting fit the polished Saks Potts vibe, which in turn reflects that of the founders.
Polish needn’t be prissy, a fact that was proven by Erin Wasson who opened the show with a sizzling look: blue leather pants and a neon-green chiffon plunge-neck halter. Though Wasson carried it off in spades, in truth it’s somewhat of a stretch to imagine the Saks Potts woman as a femme fatale. The rosette on her leave-nothing-to-the-imagination sheer top hinted at the tamer mood of most of the collection, which combined elevated workwear influences and neo-country themes in the form of carpenter-style pants, a custom equestrian print, and the use of tweeds.
Outerwear remains a strong category at Saks Potts. The brand first found fame with colorful fur-trimmed coats, but now has a more wardrobe-focused approach. Saks and Potts aren’t creating narrative collections (which accounts for some of the piecey feeling of the lineup), but imagining the garments women need, or would like to have. A cropped navy jacket, complete with a hook to hold the brand’s ear pods case was a knockout, and an example of the designers’ attention to what Potts calls “super-practical details.”
That dressy casual is Saks Potts’s sweet spot was best exemplified by a pair of roomy trousers worn with a rose-embellished shirt made of fine Italian fabric, with a whimsical belt sitting over the hips. Dashing style can come without a diva attitude.
