If you really want to be haute this fall, get ready to look like you played a part in the Dark Knight movie or stepped out of an oil spill. Oily, dark finished fabric is everywhere.
Alexander Want, Kai Kuhne, and Roksanda Ilinic are showing macabre, luscious silks. Balenciaga's patent coat is spectacular, and the slick dark leather from Bottega Venata is strictly Dark Knight inspired. Versace may make the price of oil seem paltry and insignificant when they show their designs this fall.
