During her cocktail party presentation of Cinq à Sept’s second collection, Jane Siskin cited a mélange of references, from Seventies rock ‘n’ roll to boudoir romance. Done in a rich, autumnal palette, her chic, eclectic lineup started with a vintage floral print sourced in Paris, which Siskin used on several silk dresses. Paired with embroidered army jackets and oversize mohair cardigans, the looks took on a grunge vibe.
Siskin designs with a practical mind-set: A few looks in her lineup, such as a pinafore dress with an attached blouse underneath, came “pre-styled” for ease. An assortment of ruffled and bell-sleeve tops — including a cool silk and velvet burnout blouse — worked as a feminine counterpart to the tailored suiting. Siskin’s outerwear was all about making a statement — from a hooded fox fur jacket to a “car wash” coat with a sliced hemline and a braided leather belt.
