Key Takeaways: This season was about unusual pairings of color, patterns and texture: We spotted jersey on satin, burnt orange combined with plum, and prints mixed in with plaids.
Color Palette: Orange and blue, chocolate brown and lime green, plum, burgundy, orange, champagne.
Silhouettes: Wide-legged pants, boxy jackets, slimming jersey wrap dresses and long, flowy skirts.
Accessories Report: Scarves–tied around the head, around the neck, around the waist–anywhere you can dream up.
What’s Wearable: Virtually everything, particularly the beautiful champagne evening gowns included in the collection, as well as slimming wrap dresses and cropped jackets.
What’s Not Wearable: A fringed poncho channeling the year 2004.
