Both the show notes and the runway, with its garden-like installation at the end, made Sue’s inspiration for spring clear: flowers and nature. He used a literal interpretation, turning out loose chiffon dresses, ruffled blouses and oversized shirts in a variety of botanical prints. He mixed these with black satin bomber jackets and trousers that snapped down the side like track pants. A series of monotone ensembles in dusty rose felt out of place, and the show closed with a grouping of tulle dresses with long trains and lots of gathering. In all black or all white, some of these were reminiscent of wedding dresses, and also distracted from the rest of the collection.
