New York: Krakoff was inspired by Robert Motherwell’s Open series for his use of colors and abstract asymmetrical shapes. His signature tees and sweatshirts were updated in perforated leathers and dresses were given a feminine edge in leather tulip shapes. There still prevailed a sense of geometry but these silhouettes were softer, lighter and sensual. — Lizzy Bowring
