The Y’s studio was bent on upping the feminine quotient for its spring collection. While outsize masculine shirting, wide pants and overalls in layered monochromes still played center stage, they were softened up with charming parentheses of lace and embroidery.
The former, in delicate sage green, was worked into a patchwork on a skirt or used as an ethereal apron dress with ribbon straps to be worn almost like an accessory. A chunky black pinafore, meanwhile, was embroidered with a bright floral motif on one side.
Stripes were another key theme, seen in random widths on a pair of paperbag-waist pants in blue, beige and cream and tied with a raw cord belt, or on a long, pinstriped washed cotton shirtdress.
