Continuing last season's evolution, a move toward a cleaner, more refined aesthetic, Ronson sharpened her silhouettes for Fall and steered clear of grunge. Waists were accentuated with slender belts, and pert
collars peeked out from beneath dresses and tops. (The collars were
actually part of backless dickies, a clever way to add a touch of schoolgirl to a look without the added bulk of a button-down.)
Another ladylike touch came courtesy of the accessories. Bags, a new addition this season, were paired with complementary hats and gloves for a complete, chic set. There were still those sheer, breezy dresses in bohemian prints (a Ronson staple) but they looked fresh and sophisticated alongside the charming knits and proper pencil skirts. "I wanted to design a modern wardrobe for a real girl," Ronson said before her show. Mission accomplished.
