Crocodile skin as light and supple as fine cotton, gossamer cashmere knits, super 120s wool: In terms of luxury materials, the fall collection was as indulgent as a Roman feast. The garments, however, were sometimes light on polish and modernity. A case in point: The opening wool and cotton gabardine suits, which looked a little tight on the derrière, and had a slight sheen. The top-to-toe leather ensembles also slid towards louche territory. That said, there were enough handsome items to keep customers satisfied, such as a gray double-breasted cashmere overcoat, a cream wool pullover with a gray felt strip across the shoulder, and an of-the-moment shearling blouson in dark gray. Soft twill scarves in dark patterns added that je ne sais quoi.
