Ole Yde said in the show notes for his spring collection that he looked to “exotic and unknown lands,” which he translated via animal prints on a sassy tie-neck dress, an airy evening number and other looks in a palette that included electric blue, brown, cream and orange.


Yde also affixed ostrich feathers to otherwise minimalist evening gowns and showed a series of tulle tops with 16th-century ruff collars, which popped from underneath both a tweed jacket-and-skirt ensemble and a crystal-embroidered black overcoat. Though some pieces had commercial appeal, the collection as a whole suggested that Yde shouldn’t try to be all things to all people.
