This coolly polished collection telegraphed a grown-up approach to fashion. Silhouettes were long and lean, such as high-waist pencil skirts and belted tailored jackets, but done in energetic color blocks of maroon, sky blue and tomato red. The designer also continued to evolve his signature prints, which this time ranged from bold geometrics to tropical birds of paradise. One zigzag print, done in red, white and blue, adorned a knee-length day dress, while a shift came in a bold red and blue wallpaper pattern. The blocks of colors segued seamlessly into softer versions for evening, as in an ankle-length dress made up of layers of pleated chiffon, in graduated shades of maroon, pink and orange.
