Her years at Calvin Klein and the desire for a minimal yet detail-oriented wardrobe have informed Nellie Partow’s collection since her debut in 2011. Her suits are made from top-of-the-line Italian fabrics in New York, and have become a sought-after wardrobe staple. But for fall, it was her knits — another of Partow’s strengths — that left the biggest impression. She offered a range from sleek fishtail braided sweaters to a memorable cashmere “freckled” poncho, which featured the tiniest of colorful threads popped throughout — just like freckles. Partow, who this season dropped the “Nellie” from the label, said she’s in expansion mode, which led her to dribble into evening with a series of fil coupe dresses and blouses. One standout: a beautiful blush and silver long-sleeve column gown that left us wanting to see more.
