NEW YORK — Stephen Burrows doesn’t seem to have missed a beat — even though he has only recently returned to fashion after over a decade away from the fray. During that time, he has been renovating a building in Harlem and doing design work for private clients. Last season, Burrows recaptured his signature Seventies style — body-conscious knits in bold, playful colors — in a seamless return venture with Henri Bendel, the store that helped put him on the fashion map back then. And the response has been enthusiastic. For fall, he’s continuing to experiment with color and amusing fabric mixes. There are black cashmere cardigans and matching skirts with one quirky stripe of red that snakes its way around the body; wool pullovers with leather and suede accents, and asymmetric jersey skirts. Burrows volleys between the stark simplicity of a brick jersey sheath and the soft femininity of a bright ruffled chiffon wrap shirt, while his belted shearlings are nothing short of sexy. The 30-piece collection, exclusive to Henri Bendel, retails from $300 to $3,500.
