Roy interpreted the Art Deco theme fairly literally on pieces like a pretty, drop-waist dress with sunburst pleating fanning out into a cascade on one side, or a gauzy sweater with a pattern that looked like a zoomed-in shot of piano keys. Personally, Roy prefers to "borrow from the boys" and gravitates toward the relaxed tweed suiting separates that she's pushed in recent seasons. But she has also built up her business on eveningwear, so there were a few statement looks here ripe for after-hours carousing or maybe the red carpet. Case in point: a turquoise dress cut from hammered silk with a built-in rose gold choker necklace and long sleeves slit along the inner arms for a flash of skin.
