Design director Alistair Carr used a few optical tricks, and played with texture and color for this collection, which took a more feminine turn. He sent out printed jacquard dresses with black sleeves and fronts for a trompe l’oeil cardigan effect. He also whipped up “fake” twinsets — one sweater that looked like two thanks to layering and a few buttons. Shunning fur this season, Carr showed bright woolen collars made to look like astrakhan on long camel and burgundy coats. Whisper-thin gray knits with high, ruffled collars edged in white and swingy skirts with box pleats gave the collection a girly feel.
