DAINTY DEMURE

New York: Designer Araks Yeramyan’s F/W 11 designs were inspired by the 1968 film The Color of Pomegranates about eighteenth-century poet Sayat Nova. A sophisticated autumnal palette reflected that film’s imagery: saturated maroons and navies were accented with vivid pinks and cobalt. Simple column silhouettes, almost-classic cardigans, little pegged pants and prim, completely buttoned-up shirts felt demure, but an abundance of lace, pleated chiffons, scrunched nearly neon socks, and femme beauty (offset by shocking orange lip paint) gave the offerings quirky charm. Sheer layering was a recurring theme, and while dainty lingerie was often visible underneath see-through frocks, scuffed, mannish oxfords kept the looks offbeat and grounded.
