Charlotte de Fayet is putting a subtle spin on the most classic of knits. The entrepreneur bought the Molli brand — founded in 1886 and long renowned for its creations for newborns — a couple of years ago, and this was her third collection. As well as cozy coats in the label’s heritage moss stitch, there were ruffle-necked sweaters in what de Fayet calls “Chantilly” stitch for its fluffy, whipped-cream effect, and a skirt in a chevron pattern that gave the look of pleats. Wide pants had a barely distinguished stripe down the side in a contrasting stitch, hinting at eveningwear, while a bomber jacket and below-the-knee skirt in a tartan jacquard knit gave a touch of fantasy to this collection focused on comfort with understated class.
