The design team’s graphic approach to color and pattern permeated Agnona’s collection, which paired blouses in checkered silk with stripy sweaters in a novel take on the traditional twinset. The label’s White collection of sporty casuals placed the focus on fine fabrics, such as the double cashmere of a Sixties-style collarless coat in zingy yellow, which was slung over a circle-print silk shift. Those geometric patterns were echoed in Martin Grant’s designs for the Brown line, including a floor-length halterneck silk dress in a blown-up grid pattern. There was plenty of toned-down glamour, too, with fluid crepe de Chine wide-leg pants and lightweight summer versions of the hand-embroidered sweaters launched last season, rendered here in cotton rather than cashmere.
