SHIMMER + STRUCTURE

New York: Designer Fiona Cibani employed simple, sturdy silhouettes as a vehicle for textural exploration. Shimmering collarless coats, boxy tees and straight shifts featured metallic blocks of color, while firm wools gained dimension from placed panels of sheared mink. Structured short sleeve tops nipped in at the waist for a pleated peplum effect, or acted as a rigid top layer. Bottoms were more malleable — easy wide leg pants were cropped to the ankle and accordion pleats lent movement to silk knee-length skirts. A palette of teal and burnt pumpkin softened things with warmth and supplied additional richness.  —Anna Jane Davis
