Jeremy Laing reworked his sculptural, textured aesthetic to bold effect with a look decidedly borrowed from the boys. Laing has an inclination toward more sensual fare in his lineups, and while he didn’t abandon that, he married it with oversize and more rigid pieces. Broad-shouldered coats and jackets in mohair, bleach print velvet or wool with antiqued leather (some featuring zip-backs which, when worn open, added extra volume to the silhouette) looked great over skinny pants, pleated trousers or billowing, paneled dresses. As for his more fluid offerings, Laing stayed true to his style with long dresses or tops and played with layering underneath the heavier coats. While a few exaggerated shoulder looks bordered on cartoonish, the overall feel was daring and modern.
