Qui êtes-vous, Behnaz Sarafpour? Once upon a time we knewa girl who made pretty, uptown-chic dresses for young, spirited, millennial Holly Golightlys. (And goodness knows there are more of them than ever these days!) But, as of late, Sarafpour seems to have been trying on too many different aesthetic hats. Undeniably, Tuesday night's show had many stylish moments, but they also felt slightly disparate.
Like last season, she began with a series of eco-friendly looks, among them wool minidresses with a leaf appliqué (and shades of Lanvin) that looked impressively un-granola. From there, the collection was by turns aggressive, in little silk dresses topped with beastly goat-hair jackets; modern, in a photo-print floral minidress; ladylike, in a glazed satin trench; and then bohemian, in lovely and breezy ruffled dresses. Glimpses of Sarafpour's original direction were present, too, such as a crinkled plum shift with a trompe l'oeil bow necka reminder of what this industry darling can do.
