New York: Inspired by Claire McCardell, Creative director Marcel Marongiu created feminine sportswear that focused on fabric and simplicity. Leather mini dresses in neutral colour-blocked patterns started the show along with woven dungarees. Textured tweed raffia was used in basic silhouettes with interest being in the bold yellow and navy colour combination. Maxi kaftan dresses had plunging necklines appropriate for the summer months, along with bikini tops. –Jaclyn Jones
