But this inclement opening belied the prettiness of some of the rest of the collection. In particular, there were some lovely color combinations, with pale pinks, soft oranges, and gentle biscuit shades combining attractively. There were also ladylike pencil-skirt combinations, making this collection much more feminine than one has come to expect from Leroy. However, these then melted away and were replaced by some unappealing oversize camouflage prints and otherwise elegant blouses marred by overexaggerated shoulders (Balmain, you have much to answer for).
There were some great, very grown-up pale brown chiffon dresses at the end, though the memory of these was overshadowed by the return of short shorts, this time with a sweater fringed at the bottom with fur.
