A breezy, playful mood blew through this collection, creative director Blue Farrier’s sophomore runway outing for the label. The strong lineup revolved around unstructured, easy silhouettes. Silk dresses — some with pockets — came in loose T-shirt and roomy sleeveless smock shapes, as in one silver number with a navy galloping horse print and chiffon panels at the skirts. The unfussy feel was also evident in a series of jumpsuits, such as one hot-pink, draped design with a deep V-neck and carrot-shaped pants. Even the more glamorous looks had an insouciant air — a white chiffon tank stitched with black organza flowers was paired with black knee-length shorts, and a floor-sweeping, pleated peach strapless gown got a graphic jolt from a cartoonish black pattern that resembled paint drips. The aesthetic was reminiscent of the sporty, wearable designs that have become Stella McCartney’s calling card, but Farrier put her own stamp on the clothes.
