There were pinstripes aplenty in Stephen Burrows
' Fall collection, titled "Bankable Burrows." "This is a time about money," the designer explained after the show. "I want to make beautiful clothes at an affordable price that look good inside and out." A bicolored, double-faced wool cape coat certainly looked like a solid investment piece, as did a sweeping camel topper that concealed a microscopic silver-beaded nude jersey dress. Also upping the sex quotient were leopard boots by Christian Louboutin and jewelry by Robert Lee Morris. "Burrows' main appeal will always be that he likes the female form," said his model friend Alva Chinn, seated front-row. "There's always comfort and ease." Those qualities should be important to the boutique buyers who are Burrows' main accounts, and whose support will be more crucial than ever in this environment.
