“A ladylike woman who borrows her husband’s clothes.” That was Marcia Patmos’ idea behind her M. Patmos collection, which combined Forties men’s wear with feminine touches. Patmos also played with trompe l’oeil, showing a sweater cut to look like a capelet over a T-shirt, as well as funnel-neck dickies for a turtleneck effect.

Wonderful knits are the core of Patmos’ business, so they were again plentiful, from oversize waffle-knit cardigans to jacquard sweaters in ikat and camouflage motifs. Those prints were also worked on woven skirts and trousers, while a dose of luxe came via a reversible shearling vest, a fox-fur coat and leather details on jackets.
