New York: The flapping flags outside promising newcomer Jeremy Laing’s apartment inspired his sophisticated new collection. Ultra-lightweight cupro and billowy satin floated down the runway, mimicking the banners blowing in the wind, and color blocking and stripes referenced flag-like motifs. Mesh panels, linen and knitted strips of leather added textural interest to the looks. Extra-long sweaters and dresses that were hitched up and wrapped around the neck could conceivably be worn several different ways, allowing each wearer to customize the item. Single-sleeved dresses, diagonal slits and elongated side panels were among the asymmetrical details Laing used this season, giving looks a slightly off-kilter feel. The bright orange that has shown up at many other New York shows also appeared at Jeremy Laing; a satin dress in the tone “trapped” by a linen skirt was a highlight, mixing structure and fluidity and revealing the young designer’s singular talent.
