Lela Rose was inspired by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and focused on his “fusion of structure and movement; romanticism and functionality.” To that end, she used grid or cable influences for her plaid and lace patterns and arched the seams of silk crepe sheaths for a collection that was equally strong for both day and night. The designer sent out a number of terrific outerwear pieces and sporty looks, including double-faced graveled wool coats over shirts and pleated skirts and a gray and black embroidered jacket over a shell and trousers — all in plaids. When it came to evening, Rose’s beading and draping were gracefully controlled for her beautifully cut, below-the-knee sheaths. The wine and gray geomtrically beaded ivory tulle dress and a draped, brick silk number were two perfect examples of her elegant ease and simplicity.
