Chadwick Bell continued his tradition of quiet, nicely tailored suits and dresses — this time inspired by Gigi Stoll’s photographs of the desert. Evidence of the sand-scape showed up in the muted palette of beige, cinnamon and dusty blue on loose, draped tops, dresses and caftans; breezy stark white voile dress shirts, and a pale army drab tailored jacket. At times Bell overdid it on the buttons. And while the collection was refined in its simplicity, the beautiful nude gown with oxblood paillette embroidery added a welcome energy.
