Images of abandoned asylums and other desolate places served as the starting point for Bonnie Young’s fall collection. The shades and light reflected in the pictures, as well as their sense of mystery, influenced both the color palette and the abstract patterns, injecting an arty feel into a flowing silk tunic dress and a feminine blouse with coordinating fluid pants. The same motif was rendered on a dress crafted from a metallic pleated fabric, while a precious sequined sweatshirt featured a chic dégradé pattern in the same hues. There was great research into special materials and treatments — including the lacquered coating of a covetable shearling jacket — which paired beautifully with the relaxed, effortless silhouettes. Maxi silk dresses were wrapped around the body or cinched at the waist with thick leather belts with giant grommets, which enhanced the Seventies’ vibe running through the collection. The focused, charming lineup also included wool denim wide-leg pants embellished with subdued multicolor stitching, as well as covetable pieces in exotic leathers, such as a power coat with a mink collar and a new version of the classic safari jacket. Young’s fall effort offered a strong, mature wardrobe that took a rational yet highly creative approach to women’s wear.
