This was the first New York showing for London designer Louise Goldin, who presented a more laid-back look than in her past collections. The clothes were relaxed in attitude, shape and palette but still stayed true to her mission of “pushing knitwear to a future vision.” Spring was a mélange of textiles and patterns, with most executed in straight-cut layers on dresses, skirts and shorts. The designer mixed houndstooth and ribbing for a copper-sleeve jacket over blush pants and showed color-blocked dresses in nude, lapis, orange, black and lots of white. Her use of nude-toned knit throughout gave the illusion of bare skin, adding an element of sexy cool.
