Humberto Leon and Carol Lim’s venue choice — New York’s General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen — was perhaps a nod to the functionality of the Kenzo collection they showed for pre-fall. The designers looked to Americana, especially the Northwest, thus the focus here was on warmth with woolen blazers, parka coats and heavy wrap skirts, a silhouette that appeared throughout.

Graphic prints included a pattern based on a series of motel doors (shown on a pantsuit) and oversize checks that stemmed from a reflection of neon lights, the latter worked on a shirtdress, boxy top and tailored pants.
