Greek designer Christina Economou said she homed in on contradictions for fall: futurism versus tradition, drama versus ease. Themes of contrast also came through in her use of fabrics, which shifted from heavier weights — wool, brocade, mohair, corduroy and faux sheepskin — to more fluid silk and velvet separates.
Known for her whimsical print work, Economou worked a celestial print throughout her shirting, dresses and maxiskirts, a Space Age-y reference underscored by the inclusion of a few looks in silver metallic Lurex. Elsewhere, a camouflage pattern elevated shimmering brocade suiting and a layered mock-neck minidress. Though a few pieces felt out of place in the varied lineup, there was plenty to like here, especially her denim and velvet wide-leg trousers and an easy silk and velvet slipdress with a sexy, open back.
