“Raw romance” is what Laura and Kristopher Brock called their latest seasonal offering. For Fall 2019, the design duo ventured into a more industrial wardrobe territory but without sacrificing their signature brand of classic femininity and romanticism. It was just a little less floaty than usual. Take for instance the tweed ensemble in pastel hues that opened the show, which while classic, had a contemporary edge to it that was easy and slightly more youthful than one might expect. A stand-out look was that of the floor-length tan short-sleeved coatdress—easy to wear yet still incredibly romantic. Things got a bit tougher as the show went on, with waists nipped to form more defined hourglass shapes to exquisitely tailored pieces that almost look military-like (having them in military green helped a little as well). Suddenly, the Brock Collection runway was for the everyday woman, one who’s eager to work in a midi-length semi-translucent red and white polka-dot dress or a ruffled white cotton frock paired with a belted military green day jacket. Although the florals were relatively quite weak here, they didn’t drag the line down from its freeing and liberating glory of delicate femininity!
