Slitted skirts have been all the rage on the runways and the streets as of late. I was especially intrigued by the thickened basket-weave pieces both on the knits and trousers. Geometric constructions and patterns in the dresses and the recurring "v" motif rounded this collection out nicely.

3 C's - Crisp, clean, and classic. Of course, there was a great sense of modernity to the otherwise classic wardrobe pieces of coats, pleated trousers, and knit dresses. I loved the texture added by the ribbing and the fine patterning of the first few pieces as well as the pocketing and other details on that blue coat.
Curving silhouettes and strong straight lines / ballooning proportions paired with slim fitting bottoms are the way to my sartorial heart. I loved the patchwork-like piecing of the different solid and printed components and the general construction of each of his garments, from the pleated skirts to the floor-dusting coats.
God bless the beautiful combination of chunky knitwear and tapered trousers (and skirt-over-pants...although realistically it ain't happening for most of us). It simply does not get better than colorblocked sweaters and finely tailored trousers/pleated skirts. This collection is truly exemplar of how to layer with rather oversized proportions. All three sweaters, please!
