NEW YORK — Fernando Sanchez’s fall-winter at-homewear is an eclectic mix of Marrakech, old Hollywood and looks that would have been right at home in Oscar Wilde’s dressing room. It all came together in a presentation in his showroom on Monday. Sanchez’s whimsical satin baby-doll looks in icy pastels, from swingy little A-line chemises to dramatic bias-cut slipgowns, were among the strongest looks in the collection. He also went all out in the opulence department, layering puff robes and smoking jackets over kimonos and full swingy pajama bottoms, sweeping brocade jackets and robes.
Sanchez was at his best with his wilder, more sumptuous looks, losing his exuberance with more traditional corduroy and plaid robes and spare tunics that ended up looking like the poor relations in the group.
