NEW YORK — Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco, the design duo behind the Kaufmanfranco label, are right on track with fall’s somber mood: They’ve labeled their fantasy girl an “Urban Warrior.” She is both aggressive and refined; think Angelina Jolie in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” The lineup consists of highly functional and active pieces with a polished and feminine twist, all in primarily dark tones. Jackets and coats are reversible — nylon and sporty on one side and sophisticated and conservative on the other. Key items include sharp shrunken jackets in exotic skins, sexy skinny pants, cozy chunky knits, dramatic low-back evening dresses and ladylike tweeds with a vintage feel.
