New York: Known for his knits, Risto Bimbiloski featured a few enticing – albeit relatively straightfoward – oversized sweaters in sparkly yarns, clean color blocks and subtle contrasting textures in his new collection. However, the real story here was about hair: the models sported windblown, side-swept braids, and the clothes bore photorealistic and illustrated prints depicting tresses. Somehow the overall effect proved to be more cute than creepy, as girly shifts, A-line skirts and femme blouses prettified the furry motifs. Fall also saw Bimbiloski move into more tailored separates and woven outerwear. Slouchy blanket coats mimicked his relaxed knits, but mannish trousers and boyish blazers provided a nice structured anchor to the collection.
