Folksy elements, seen through a modern lens, defined this collection, which designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos worked with a breezier, more youthful air than in seasons past.
The designers cited Peruvian quilting as one of the “worldly” techniques they’d explored, with the stitching embroidered onto the silk pockets of oversized tweed parkas, or on a panel of one wool wrap skirt. But alongside those obviously wintery elements were fluttery, bias-cut dresses that had a seasonless, globally minded appeal. One navy blue number was edged in a red and gold pattern that evoked a silk scarf, while another hot pink, one-sleeved silk dress was embellished with pipe cleaners, twisted into leaf shapes.
Adding to the arty-crafty vibe were oversized sweater dresses, sewn with patches embroidered with what looked like Incan symbols. Accessories, too, had a quirky appeal, from the mismatched glass earrings in abstract shapes, designed by Jochen Holz, to shiny leather riding boots stitched with colorful embroidery.
