“High Priestess” is how Wes Gordon described his woman this season and he had a reason for the darker, more sinister turn. “As a designer, I always love fall — the colors, the textures, the fabrics — more than spring, and I wanted to think about how I could love spring as much as fall,” he said. Gordon worked with mills to develop light fabrics with textures and prints reminiscent of the chillier season, like a lovely silk bustier dress in an olive-and-white crocodile pattern, styled with a simple olive cashmere tank top, as well as an embroidered knit T-shirt teamed with flared black raffia pants.
They, along with the rest of the lineup, showcased the designer’s ability to give eveningwear a light, youthful hand. And as Gordon put it, “Pants with a cool T-shirt is sometimes more fun than a big taffeta gown.”
