Tess Giberson referred to this season’s effort as part two of the explorations she began for resort: breaking apart and reassembling clothes in new and unexpected ways. She focused on four key pieces: blazer, T-shirt, button-down shirt and sweater, adeptly reworking the basics into a lineup of draped, sliced, asymmetric, layered and wrapped jackets, dresses, tops and knits. As usual, Giberson favored neutrals, working this time in an all-white canvas to emphasize the complex constructions — some that could require an instruction pamphlet to wear, and a certain figure to pull off. The monochromatics were occasionally broken up with embroidery, mesh insets and a wolf illustration (by her husband, artist Jon Widman) on a chiffon T-shirt.
