New York: The fashion world’s darling duo David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have hit the mark again this season with an appealing mix of aspirational meets accessible surfer-girl-cum-club-kid looks. An active-inspired thread ran through the collection in the form of silky poncho anoraks, a plethora of hoods, and toggle closure lacing that topped off whisper-thin sheer blouses. High-low hems and a stark asymmetrical tunic lent movement to the flowy, relaxed ensembles that felt ready for the beach or a music festival — but possessed just enough impact for downtown dressing. A penchant for color, which ran the gamut from extra-saturated teal to a subdued mustardy yellow kept every look interesting, while patchwork tweed and a 70s-esque geometric print lent visual texture to jackets and soft columnar trousers. —Shannon Davenport
