Paule Ka’s creative director Serge Cajfinger imagined dressing a “well-traveled art advisor” for his fall collection.
The minimalist silhouettes, done in a reduced palette of black, white and navy blue, had a modernist feel. Elegant culottes and mixed-media tops — like a knit turtleneck spliced with a poplin shirt hem — would look right at home on the gallery scene.
The brand’s iconic bows came small and ornamental on a sober trapeze dress, or extra-large and demonstrative on an evening bustier gown. The reversible coats were especially chic, shown in either black and navy sheepskin or a mix of white wool and black hammered satin.
