The designer mined familiar territory in a collection referencing rockers of a certain age — Bryan Ferry, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles in their Sgt. Pepper’s incarnation. Silhouettes were tall and thin thanks to longer jackets, frock, and car coats — some artfully torn at the front, and others with drummer boy frogging — and trousers that ranged from stove pipe styles to ones with a subtle flare at the hem.

Varvatos further accentuated his elongated shapes with long silky shirts or scarves flowing from under waistcoats or jackets. Texture was a big story, too: Coats and jackets werecrinkle treated, while the undersides of jacket collars were paved with sparkles.

Zipper pockets appeared as a sporty touch on white, double-breasted jackets, while watch chains dangled from low-cut waistcoats, Oscar Wilde-style.
