Canadian-born Edeline Lee is known for her sharp, yet feminine shapes. The designer cuts all of her own patterns, and this season played with squares, circles, flaps, and loops. She transformed circles of gray flannel into fitted dresses or long coats, while folded or pleated squares of Yves Klein blue fabric were hewn into evening dresses.

The oversized bows on blouses, meanwhile, were two big loops of cotton that could be tied in a variety of ways. Texture also played a big role, with coats made from sweatshirt fabric bonded to nubby neoprene; blouses with a laser hole-punch pattern; and black tops made from fuzzy wool and satin felted together for a quilting effect.
