David Neville and Marcus Wainwright almost always design under the influence of men’s wear, tailoring, etc. — it’s in their English roots. For pre-fall they took it easy, co-opting pocket squares and pajamas for precise prints and loose silhouettes, such as navy and burgundy paneled-silk dresses and pajama sets that conjured classic gentlemanly charm from a cool girl’s point of view. “It’s old-school, but very feminine,” said Wainwright. Not derived from pajamas or pocket squares, but still a sharp look, was a cropped denim jacket and button-up A-line skirt.
Relaxed blazers in pinstripes and dot prints worn over sporty dresses and track pants captured the intersection of laid-back and dressed-up, an attitude crystallized in the look book, shot in London on Olympia Campbell, younger sister of Edie.
