Silhouettes switched off between puffy-shouldered, ladylike suits (in electric blue silk or black wool shot through with tinsel) and a three-quarter-sleeve shift that practically screamed "Alexa Chung." In fact, the influence of the former MTV host and unofficial brand ambassador could be felt throughout: T-bar ballerina flats in leopard and studded black, collared silk blouses buttoned up all the way, and, of course, new versions of the Alexa bag. Of the leather goods that debuted, the strongest was the chain-strapped Edna, which came in taupe shoulder bag and tomato red drawstring variations.
Although the clothes were cute and fun, this show was really all about the loads of chic accessories—that, and the delightful showmanship.
