With an imaginary rock star’s girlfriend as her muse, Jill Stuart turned out a Seventies-inspired collection that was a cross between bohemian and tough girl. There were cool denim dresses, chic caftans, delicate lace tops and embroidered frocks, all with a pretty, beachy vibe.
Then, for nights out, things got tough with tight black leather dresses and pants. While they looked cool, these veered toward Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. Rounded shoulders, cropped tops, slipdresses and baby-doll numbers were some of Stuart’s new shapes that modernized the Seventies spirit.
