For fall, Sophie Theallet envisioned a family of aristocrats who lost their fortune and stopped maintaining their castle. “They still look beautiful and continue to live an elegant life,” Theallet said during a preview. The idea translated into a faded notion of glamour — as if Theallet’s woman was pulling looks from her closet, like a brown knit turtleneck tucked under a black cocktail dress, and a draped Swiss-dot dress cinched at the waist, all of which had a slightly vintage feel. She drove the theme home with an ornamental, brocadelike pattern in various color combinations, which could also work well as a chic wallpaper — perhaps the one in her protagonist’s grand, run-down home.
