Amy Smilovic is paying attention. She knows what her woman wants: Designer fashion within reach, price-wise. Isn’t that the dream? She wisely doesn’t knock off other designers outright, but she funnels the trickle-down from the luxury stage into her own collections and it’s working for her.

Fall had riffs on big-shouldered men’s tailoring and shirts, stylish schmatta shirtdresses, weird drapey dresses worn over pants and colorful satin shoes worn with sheer tights that rung a bell from the organic minimalist/edgy bourgeois school of thought. Smilovic had her own way with the looks. A big shirtdress with a funnel neck came in buffalo checks; oversize coats had S-shaped buttons, the drapey velvet and satin final dresses looked like blouses layered under a one-shouldered slipdress sling. There was a lot to wear, particularly in the tailoring and shirts.

The models walked through a set of monochromatic rooms; one pink, one blue, one burgundy, which looked like an office or a home. “It’s about every moment of a woman’s life and looking your best, whether you’re at home or the office or outside,” said Smilovic, not really shedding any light on the specifics of the aesthetic.
