Whitney Pozgay was inspired by Asian art and fashion from the 1800’s to the mid-1900’s for fall. She seamlessly blended the charm and softness of Japanese landscape-printed silk shirts with sturdy French workwear shapes. “I like the drier hand of Japanese fabrics mixed with the silks,” the designer said. But this was more than just a texture mash-up for Pozgay, who likes her layers for winter days. Accordingly, she showed wrapped and tied jumpsuits, wool or quilted indigo denim, low-back aprons in wool tweed with ribbon straps, jumpers in fine horizontal cotton or cashmere corduroys — all over a painterly collection of silk shirts. There are simple, knee-length dresses here, too. One beauty was a simple, slender silhouette, shown in a bold, painted bird print in rust and black velvet. Pozgay continues to expand her fashion repertoire as well as develop a deft hand with each new niche.
