Don O’Neill was struck by an image of Richard Serra’s recent sculpture in Qatar, “East-West/West-East,” comprised of four steel plates standing against the stark desert sky. He attempted to mimic the effect in his pre-fall collection by placing long, geometric panels in contrast colors and patterns on lean dresses. Graphic and modern, some the panels came in interesting textural treatments, such as transparent, embroidered vinyl and laser-cut jacquard. But there were more classically glam fabrics and silhouettes, too, such as gold lace dresses and a green silk chiffon caftan with a beaded, deep-V neckline that offered a fluid alternative to all the Serra-inspired body-con shapes.
