The Australian designer Dion Lee is known for his body-con cutout dresses, but this season he successfully shifted gears into tailoring with what he described backstage as an “away-from-the-body approach.”

Looking to workwear for inspiration, Lee opened with a great pin-striped jacket with a white collar and bodice paired with a matching asymmetric boxy skirt, but the two pairs of pin-striped overalls took his reference too literally. Things picked up with a few pink looks: a lovely mohair turtleneck tunic, slit up the sides and worn over a printed pleated skirt, as well as two pleated chiffon dresses.

As for those sexy signature dresses, the standout was a sleeveless, below-the-knee ivory number with strips of snakeskin crisscrossing the bodice in a cutout effect.
