Australians have a way of making interesting impressions.
Take Crocodile Dundee: “He seems so authentic.” Kylie Minogue: “She looks insane in those hot pants. She’s how old?” Russell Crowe: “So what if he hit me with a rotary phone? Did you see The Insider?”
Add Alice McCall to the mix. The Australian-based designer has a knack for charming yet crazy geometrics — and she’s attracting quite the fan base. In her spanking new bohemian winter collection, bold colors and prints mix seamlessly with bell sleeves, girly bows, and corset waists.
You’ll make an impact yourself in her piped car coats, trenches, and cardigans. (With drapey beaded, ruched, and ruffled halters underneath.) And in one of McCall’s signature cocktail dresses, you’re sure to make a splash.
Without ever having to wrestle a crocodile.
