Paris: While an overall optimistic mood has materialized this spring in mostly shades of white, Stuart Vevers chose to instead play up the cheerful attitude with bold colors and plenty of girlish charm. It was a complete departure from last season’s relatively serious, colorless collection and a drastic change for the long-established, leather and print-driven label. Vevers re-appropriated the house’s renowned leathers for the young-at-heart with bubblegum brights, laser-cut floral appliqués and flirty hemlines. Even suits received a youthful update with mini skirts, piped pajama styling and playful polka dots. The collection worked best when bridging the generation gap and balancing the old with the new. A simple leather wrap dress had edgy appeal despite its lipstick color, ponyhair gave a leopard-printed coat just enough girly gloss, and a leather shift appliquéd with intricate ponyhair scrollwork showed off old-world craftsmanship in a fresh way.
