The J. JS Lee collection had a calm yet offbeat mood, with its oversized shapes, muted colors and natural fabrics.
Designer Jackie Lee cited her “tomboy childhood years” among her inspirations. Cue slouchy sweater dresses, pants with drawstring waists and long tunics, mostly done in gray and black wools and jerseys.
While some of Lee’s experimental shapes were awkward in the heavier fabrics — as in one gray wool strapless dress with a drawstring bust line — the silhouettes had more appeal fashioned in fluid, printed silks. Among the standouts was a pink and black ankle-length silk dress, with a drawstring detail at the bodice.
