Trend: Tales of the Unexpected

This season, if you think you’ve got it, think again.

Things aren’t always what they seem. That’s a well-known motto in the design world, where tea strainers can double as menacing arachnids and what appears to be broken may not be. This fall, fashion, too, delights in tricking the eye in ways both overt and subtle. So if the prospect of stepping out with pink surrealist hands grasping your hips proves too daunting, you can still opt for visual hijinks, from knitted “feathers” and real fur masquerading as faux to—oh, surprise us.
