Keeping a sharp eye on fashion all over the globe means being regularly surprised with new-to-you labels that deliver exactly what you've been wanting at a moment when all the usual suspects feel less than satisfying. Such was the case with the Howl Fall 2014 collection.  Bright winter whites, with pops of blue and black made for a perfect backdrop for designer Maria Glück's artful signature touches such as "plywood" accents and bulky yet chic burlap separates.

The overall effect deftly struck a balance between avant-garde and wearable, with a tangible influence of sculpture art.  This influence can be traced to Glück's start in the gallery world where she began her career before making the transition into fashion.
