This was a quiet collection, but a rather lovely one. Giving away the fact that she hails from the sunnier shores of L.A ., Stephanie Schur incorporated some unusually light elements for Fall: breezy silk-twill dresses, chiffon tops, and gauzy head wraps that clearly weren't designed to weather the winter winds of New York. Actually, Schur had East Asia in mind: Japanese art, to be exact.
For us Northeasterners, thankfully, these delicate bits were deftly mixed with heavier pieces. Exhibit A: a dress that had a rose skirt floating beneath a fitted black-wool bodice. A pink silk topsimple save for the enormous crystals cascading from the shoulderswas tucked into a voluminous black skirt with that subtle sheen we've seen all over this week. Fuchsia and black moirés as well as clean, Japanese prints, added texture to a sweetly winning collection.
