DISHEVELED CLASSICIST
New York: Brazillian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch took a more classical direction than usual this season, choosing classical square necklines, nipped waist peplum tops and high waist clamdiggers for a retro intellectual message. A certain Les Misérables flair popped up too, communicated via voluminous pleated midi skirts done in a ticking stripe and paired with wrapped silk tops, while illustrated botanical prints were reminiscent of formal parlor wallpaper. Pretty and light in reflective satin, the collection included edgy deconstruction and asymmetry as a foil for the traditionalist silhouette, a disheveled feature well-suited to Herchcovitch’s closing boudoir looks.—Nina Stotler
