New York: Peter Som’s offbeat youthful sophisticate got serious for fall, gearing up for her grown-up job with New Look “bar” suits, prim sheath dresses and luxurious fur-pieced coats. It was a more polished version of the designer’s brand of ladylike quirk, but there were still refreshing hints of whimsy to be found in the styling of military parkas with demure suits, sequined pants and dashes of colorful florals.
