For spring, Neil Barrett said he looked to “the curvy, linear lines of the Ray and Charles Eames iconic lounger.” (He had already taken a cue from the designers’ Fifties Americana for his men’s collection.)

Ergonomic lines were evident on everything from the accessories (leather-and-wood bags and shoes stacked on wooden heels, for instance) to the appliqués. Silhouettes sprung from activewear, such as skating skirts and T-shirts, but were worked in unusual fabrics like leather bonded with viscose jersey, perforated ponyskin or mesh. Feathers and a tinge of scarlet livened up the black, white and gray palette.

And since Barrett loves a good hybrid, what looked like a traditional biker jacket was actually a sweatshirt.
