Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi turned out a spunky collegiate collection for Fay that was embellished to the hilt.
Varsity jackets came either elongated or cropped and luxed up with patent patches, fur fronts and banded leather sleeves. Woodstock — as in Snoopy’s inscrutable bird friend — motifs lined up on sweaters and appeared as chenille patches for a look that was strictly freshmen. Bold houndstooth checks and thick diagonal stripes in primary colors added to this busy affair.
Still, some of the details were cute, notably the perky visors attached to the hoods of quilted puffer jackets and the academic scarves in multicolored mink.
