Veronique Branquinho’s pre-fall could have doubled as the wardrobe for a hipster reboot of “Snow White” or “Sleeping Beauty.” The designer imaged chaste damsels clad in Victorian-inspired high-neck, pintucked lace blouses and dramatic floor-length skirts — some cable-knit, some denim — walking in a dark winter forest. Presumably it was cold out there, so she gave the girls thick, blanketlike outerwear in blown-up men’s wear patterns and a tree motif to cover up. The pieces alone had a sense of individualistic, romantic appeal, but the mix felt less than modern, especially an ivory cotton dress with a lace collar that looked like a period-piece nightshirt. Seemingly out of nowhere, there was also a group featuring a cutesy Siamese cat print, because Branquinho — along with Internet and fashion people — loves cats.
