New York: Mixing was the constant in Jill Stuart’s show. The designer combined masculine with feminine, dressy with casual, and youthful with sophisticated. Strong and mature accessories and outerwear pieces were paired with playful frocks to result in ensembles that looked like what might be worn out on the town by an adventurous teenage socialite who borrows from her mom. Prints and patterns were also strategically “thrown together.” A red and fuchsia floral was worked with a purple leopard print or a blue buffalo plaid. Statement over-the-knee boots and tough military outerwear were juxtaposed against flirty dresses made of silk and velvet. The designer managed to create a collection full of statement pieces that are strong enough to stand on their own, but can also be mixed and matched. Through the integration of opposites, a comfortable balance that made the collection wearable for a broad range of women was achieved.
