ELEGANT WAYFARER
New York:  Marcia Patmos’ F/W 13 collection was inspired by her idea of an “aristocratic nomad”. Contrasting themes of elegant womenswear and traditional menswear were apparent throughout each look. Feminine A-line and pencil  silhouettes flattered the figure while her signature fisherman and waffle knits added a sense of androgynous nonchalance. She focused on what her show notes called “two iconic patterns” — camouflage and ikat — which looked new and sophisticated when reinterpreted in luxe jacquards, digital printing techniques and hand-beading. Mid-century modern coats, boxy cropped vests with merino shearling linings and dimensional cardigans looked appealing and wearable in shades of mellow earthtones, brightened with bursts of bright cobalt, yellow and orange. —Sharon Graubard
