“Blur” may have been Tanya Taylor’s fall inspiration, but the black-and-white group that opened the show was strong and convincing. It included a pretty collarless lambskin car coat in a micro-geometric pattern and a girly dotted knit top and matching pleated skirt worn with a long-hair fur jacket.

But then the collection lost focus with the plethora of prints — from a jumbo flower motif to a pattern created by a Dutch illustrator showing a girl holding a camera — on minidresses, trenchcoats and flowing separates.

The clothes looked best when Taylor kept it simple, as with the multicolored plaid sweaters and the pale-pink knitted wrap coat.
