Anne Valerie Hash skipped her couture collection this summer, which gave her more time to focus on ready-to-wear. The extra time paid off, as Hash’s work was her strongest yet. Mixing couture-quality details with casual silhouettes, the collection had an interesting sense of push and pull, high and low. The jumpsuit was out in full force, shown in long, languid styles or as a shortall with a dropped waist. Displaying her deft hand for details, Hash showed a cropped jacket that looked as if it were made of crumpled papier maché, an iridescent organza skirt that featured overlapping petals of fabric, and elegant gathering on dresses, tops and jumpsuits. The most covetable piece of the collection were wide-legged trousers with wrapped construction that looked like a refined version of Thai fisherman pants. Each look was accessorized with Converse-style sneakers, pushing the collection’s feeling of duality even further.
