New York: Another season and yet another exquisite collection from Creative Director Josep Font. Clean lines and sculptural interest dominated the play on 3-D volume and proportions. The craftsmanship was superb – the embellishment, inspired by the 19th-century glass creations of Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka appeared on exaggerated silhouettes – a long flowing tunic and top. Wide red culottes were paired with a white wrapped bandeau, and full skirts were executed in a palette of white, navy and green. An exquisitely pieced midi strapless dress with a white shirt underneath was one of the most covetable items. Then came the sculptural pieces inspired by the land art of Nils-Udo, exaggerated peplums, sculpted flowers and continuing in this vein, silhouettes with precise origami folds – as precise as this collection. – Lizzy Bowring
