Look yonder, open your eyes wide.
Three minx standing side by side.
In yellow. In blue. In red.
Hats atop their pretty heads.
Heiresses on horseback?
Jockeys for the racetrack?
No, no, heaven’s no!
It’s a fashion show.
Mannequins milling around.

Actually, it is the Helen Yarmak S/S 2016 presentation on the last day of New York Fashion Week: The Shows. For spring, the very exacting designer plucks tulips (in part) for her inspiration, hence the fetching chapeaux.
This year’s crop also yields fox, weasel, lamb, ermine and sable morphed into vests, wraps, jackets and coats of various shapes and styles. Some are reversible, revealing attractive printed leather.
The colors – white, purple, pink, green, too – also take cues from the designer’s jewelry collection.
In deepest winter one will not only be warm, but will be ensconced in a dash of color to offset the blandness of frigid tundras.
Come on baby light my fire …
