While gearing up to host a runway show in China in March, Cynthia Rowley opened the doors of her cozy showroom in the West Village for a presentation of her fall collection with one-to-one appointments. Ultrafeminine elements were combined with more sporty, tomboy accents that added a cool, urban touch to the lineup’s girly attitude. Rowley paired these feminine pieces with football-inspired jersey T-shirts embellished with subtle sequined graphic patterns, as well as with denim jackets and pants developed in collaboration with Tennessee-based manufacturer L.C. King. Sheer silk blouses and maxi and minidresses, all embellished with sweet bows and ruffles, had a certain boho-chic appeal. They were splashed with an arty print combining flowers and tigers for a surrealistic effect, while a jacquard pattern combining checks and botanical motifs had a wallpaper-like look. The eclectic, versatile lineup also included pieces with a seventies vibe, like sequined flared pants, embroidered mesh frocks as well as a micro-floral corduroy blazer and flared trousers. Others looks paid tribute to sleek nineties minimalism, such as a cropped, long-sleeve, stretch-satin top with matching pants, as well as a fitted white dress worn with mules.
