It was all about toned-down dressing at Pamella Roland for fall — at least as toned down as eveningwear can get. Inspired by Paris in the Seventies, as well as Alicia Drake’s book “The Beautiful Fall,” Roland opened her show with a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking tuxedo suit. Then out came an assortment of coats, all with beautiful details such as shearling insets and delicate beading. Other key pieces included an embellished sweater, a fur cape and suede skirts. But Roland fans need not fret: She showed plenty of pretty dresses, from an ombré floral jacquard sheath to velvet-flocked gowns.
