Nicole Farhi played with volume and texture in this collection, inspired by an Indian garden in bloom. While at times the cocoon shapes and dramatic volumes overwhelmed the models, sculptural coats and trenches with full sleeves and cinched waists were fetching. Texture came in the form of flower appliqués, fashioned from leather or sequin-studded fabric, which spilled over onto blouses and slim skirts. The designer favored warm, sun-bleached colors including peony and persimmon, and worked a rose print — at times faded, at times abstract — onto blouson jackets and dresses with frills.
