Veronique Leroy’s spring collection was so expertly styled, at times you could swear you were looking at an issue of French Elle — circa early Eighties — spring to life.
There was a drop of Jerry Hall in the lamé dance dresses, especially a silky red one with tall boots. All the models exuded an icy aloofness in their yellow visorlike sunglasses.
While the clothes were occasionally too literally retro, Leroy usually added a cool twist, carving acid-washed denim into sleek trenches, peplum jackets and an oversize bomber, for example.
Those are among the items the cool girls will cherry pick, along with the silk blouses with big, droopy collars, and the white shirts with snug ruching above the elbow.
