The print was one of several pragmatic but playful ways — his floor-length take on the polo dress was another — Deacon worked his extravagant evening style within classic Fay parameters. As for the rest of Fay’s collection, it covered all the basic bases with trenches in brights and neutrals, and a trapeze jacket that was particularly well-done.
