Barbara Casasola said in her show notes that she wanted to “celebrate the women of her Brazilian homeland.” The designer took that inspiration in a minimal, serene direction, with the South American theme coming through in this polished collection’s warm, earthy colors and an array of organic-looking textures.

 

Casasola’s signature pleats dominated the lineup, with body-skimming tube dresses done in an ultra-fine version. They came in shades of clean white, deep red and black; some were sleeveless with cutout details at the waist, while long-sleeved versions had cutouts that revealed the shoulders.

 

She also offered wide-gauge knits, as in one moss-green tube skirt worn with a bandeau top, which brought to mind low-key beachwear. As a counterpoint to looks that showed off the body, Casasola presented chic, roomy suits, among them a white silk tuxedo with an ultra-low neckline and wide-leg pants that pooled at the ankles.
