If there’s one theme running through the collections so far this season, it’s serenity. There’s this peaceful, almost zen feeling running through the shows, as if fashion looked around at an increasingly scary and divisive world and said “Okay, everyone take a time-out for something pretty.” The show notes described this collection as, “a paean to those quiet, reflective moments that strike even the great dirty heaving metropolis that is New York City.” The palette is pale and washed out, with pops of midnight blue and deep, golden yellows to punctuate things. Entitled “Sunrise, Sunset,” it offers up, essentially, the sky in clothing form. Ethereal and sophisticated, with gentle shapes and gentle hues, beautifully draped and constructed, it was incredibly relaxing just watching these looks pass by.
