Rock chic is what Daryl Kerrigan does so well, and this time she did it with an eye to the seventies. "I began with Jane Fonda in Klute, for a leaner silhouette," she said, referencing Bree Daniels, circa 1971, perhaps the most famous call girl in all moviedom. Two fantastic, long and lean and shiny trenches opened the show. "We call it liquid leather, but it's actually a high-tech Japanese fabric," the designer explained. "Anyway, it's the ultimate mac."

Colder days will warrant the navy wool version that followed. And from there, Kerrigan moved on to tunics and dresses with dolman sleeves, swingy coats, slouchy blouson jackets and tops, and cozy belted cardigans. Nearly everything was paired with leggings, which came in satin, molten lamé, or, best of all, stretch leather. The closing series of washed-wool plaid pieces added a rustic touch to this otherwise slick urban collection. Yes, it's a formula, but when it works this well, why change?
