Farmers' Daughters: Hayseed Style Harvested From The Runways



Maybe everyone had had too much of Wangsters and all things urban, or maybe as Wall Street crumbles, designers are beginning to yearn for the simple, positive pleasures of country life. Whatever the case, fashion has taken a trip back to the old farm as inspiration this season, with pastoral touches and down-home details. From Rachel Comey and Stella McCartney to D&G and Chanel, we saw ladies who could have walked off the pages of Little House on the Prairie, dust-kicking modern cowgirls, and even a few fashionable potato farmers here and there. We don't know how practical lace-up heels would be alongside rusty gardening tools and a tractor, but hey—no one said the country life was easy.
