“Genius is in the simplicity.” That’s what Norma Kamali had to say about her recent move toward minimal and sophisticated basics.

For fall, she continued the theme, showing those pieces in a black-and-gray palette with a hint of red. A motorcycle jacket, masculine trench and boyfriend blazer all looked relaxed and cool in the comfy-sweats fabric. Kamali also used a supersoft quilted silk for several silhouettes including an oversize urban anorak.

As for her more technical workout clothes, some looks came in a beautiful marblelike pattern, while others featured sophisticated details — sheer mesh inserts, for example, added a feminine touch to a varsity jacket.
