Véronique Leroy applied an alluring, feminine touch to her spring collection, offering an array of wrap, tank and slipdresses in various lengths and delicate transparencies. They were sexy and seductive yet never vulgar. She alternated bands of fishnet knit and guipure lace to paint a graphic picture on body-hugging numbers, and used tiny embroidered eyelets to create interesting, organic patterns on the micro-check fabric of a jumpsuit and softly sculpted shirt-jacket.
The designer’s take on jumbo seersucker — splashed with big, vertical stripes — channeled an airy, retro-tinged feel on lean three-quarter dresses and cropped pants paired with big shoulder tops. The fabrics got more experimental toward the end, with some items made entirely of cutout leather leaves, although they remained approachable enough to be worn during the day. That is Leroy’s particular specialty: producing wearable clothes with a little cherry on top.
