NEWS IN BLACK AND WHITE
As the Junior-appropriate collections continue to roll in, its becoming evident that wearability is a common thread this season. That said, it doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had, and precocious French design duo Orphelie Klere and Francois Alary honed in on the sweet spot between innovative and saleable. The entirely black-and-white collection relied heavily on print and pattern, mixing up florals, dots and stripes of various sizes. Shapes stayed simple and on-trend with basic blazers, prim button-up shirts and slightly slouchy trousers grounding the graphic looks. Dévastée’s slightly moody and no-frills interpretation of motifs that are traditionally colorful and potentially juvenile, proved that sophistication and playfulness can indeed go hand in hand.
