While the collection was not uncharted territory, there were still some nice pieces in the mostly commercial lineup, such as the group of little sailor shorts paired with matching sweaters and navy or white jackets that looked young and sporty, as did some long skirts with loose, cropped tops. A bit of sex appeal came through on dresses in revealing fabrics, high slits or long racer backs.
