A series of bustier dresses worn over transparent long-sleeved blouses and turtlenecks dominated Maxime Simoens’ debut ready-to-wear collection, giving the lineup a repetitive feel. The designer worked the dresses in watery prints, geometric graphics and cashmere-leather combos meant to look like feathers.

Channeling the ballet “Swan Lake,” the pieces were very structured, much like the costumes of prima ballerinas, but feminine in essence. Slightly edgier was the cropped jacket with geometric inserts in multicolored tweed paired with skinny tuxedo pants.
