Elsewhere, Crocco toyed with the proportions that have been one of the season's big stories: cropped jackets, a big soft-shouldered pinstripe, a pair of merino long johns for silhouette emphasis. But the soundtrack blaring Cream's "I Feel Free" promised more, and it wasn't always forthcoming. Though there was some textural interesta dégradé jacquard knit, for instance, or a rough herringbone, which looked cool in a varsity jacket. And Crocco's pinstriped combats and patchworked camel coat came pretty close to capturing Ellis' own unique ability to twist the classics.
