For pre-fall, the designer put his usual little dresses—the best of them, a sleeveless silk shirtdress in pink and red camo with a drawstring waist—and swingy coats on full display. Uniform details like oversize cargo pockets and sparrow tails brought feminine pieces like A-line skirts and cropped jackets into the army world.

Likely to be standard issue when the Man Repeller inevitably assembles her militia.
