Mother of Pearl RTW Fall 2015

Calling on films like "The Royal Tenenbaums," Mother of Pearl's collection featured wallpaper florals, preppy proportions, and stiff pussy bow blouses.

Mother of Pearl creative director Amy Powney used retro florals and sporty silhouettes to create a collection that brought to mind grungy rebels dressing for a night at the country club.

Powney developed her own prints this season — retro wallpaper flowers or decorative interiors patterns — breaking from her usual artist collaborations. The first look, a mid-calf slip dress in numerous florals, worn with an oversized mannish navy coat, had the kind of thrift shop verve that defined the grunge era, while a candy pink crepe bow blouse was worn with matching track pants and a mannish check coat.

Pussy-bow blouses, skirts suits and wide-legged pants alternately read prissy or preppy. A navy coat with white scuba mesh cuffs and pocket panels was a reprieve from all the patterns. Coats in mixed leather looked clumsy.
