Theme or not, she revisited several concepts from her Fall collection, continuing to play with imbalance and juxtaposing high and low fabrics for a comfort-meets-chic look. One of her most successful ventures in this area was a black French terry T-shirt dress with a blue stripe of neoprene (borrowed from her swimsuits) for contrast. A body-hugging, washed metallic pencil skirt with white rubber piping also looked smart. A cropped cocoon jacket paired with camel riding pants was her feminine take on men's suiting. For all of the oppositions at play—masculine versus feminine and high versus low—it was a winning collection.
