Asia is certainly in the air this season. So, too, are white, black and an abundance of pajama pants, all of which showed up on Sharon Wauchob’s runway. For its shared subject matter, her collection was a standout, beautiful in its light touch.
Wauchob opened with white, a wrap shirtdress that was knife-pleated down one side. It was worn under a jacket that introduced the soft tailoring and gentle peplums that played out through the show, along with origami, lingerie and bedroom influences. A black tunic with a floral rosace decoration was slit down the front to flash the model’s bra. A strapless silk dress was suspended from a bra strap in back, and tunics and silk blouses were shown over loose, sheer pants done in scarf prints and black lace.
The delicate layers gave a taste of what lied beneath, whether in see-through fabrics or the shredded fringe effects slashed on the front of short dresses, adding up a to gracefully alluring look.
