Paris: The Aganovich girl is an intellectual dresser, one who appreciates cerebral craftsmanship, which is often challenging to the eye. In this vein, F/W 13 was a collaged collection of wearable art, using the body as a canvas for dense satin and wool garments that were folded like origami, draped, pleated and pieced-together in myriad variations. There was a lot for the eye to take in: Asymmetric lapels, double waistlines, and layered cloaks added intrigue to almost monastic smock and cloaked silhouettes. Take some of the looks apart and more wearble pieces emerge including a nubby blouson sleeve knit dress, a pinstripe satin pajama shirt and cocoon coats and jackets that were the height of sculptural polish. — Natalie Shukur
