Evoking a rich Eastern ethos, Lela Rose opened with a terrific group of looks in rich colors, textures and prints. A dotted wool jacket in a ginger tone, for instance, was worn with a skirt crocheted in an ethnic pattern. Rose was playing on “a Brothers Grimm fairy-tale inspiration” but there wasn’t a Rapunzel in sight. Some dresses, like the swirling organza one in fuchsia-and-white ombré, read more Stevie Nicks. Of course, Rose’s requisite slender cocktail dresses and gowns were all there, but it was the exotica looks that were the freshest, indicating that the designer might be on a new path.
