Known for his cobweblike, form-fitting knitwear, Mark Fast showed his more relaxed, accessible side this season, noting that he was aiming for “sophisticated grunge.” The Canadian-born designer worked with chunky ribbed knits that he fashioned into draped minidresses, cropped sweaters and hooded shawls. These cool, substantial pieces will no doubt have a wider appeal than the skimpier, cutaway minidresses that also peppered this collection. But the latter will please Fast’s flamboyant celebrity fans, including Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.
