A girl can only own so many shirtdresses. So while NAHM remains focused on its foundational staple, Ally Hilfiger and Nary Manivong are giving their customer further options to round out her wardrobe for Fall. Floor-sweeping palazzo pants, a skirted wool tuxedo coat (which looked fresh over a maxi skirt), and a plush velvet cape were a few of the pieces that gave this lineup a previously missing multidimensionality. The design duo had in mind, as Hilfiger put it, "strong, powerful women who are fearless when it comes to mixing and matching prints on prints on prints," this season.

True, you need a pretty brazen sense of humor to pull off the waggish Prince of Egypt pattern here, which was taken from a vintage blouse of Hilfiger's. Additionally, there was an allover twenties floral, often accented with delicate pastel lace, that was cleverly camouflaged against the presentation's backdrop. Loeffler Randall sampled this wallpaper motif on funky mirrored platforms created especially for the collection. Now just three seasons old, NAHM already has a strong, intuitive sense of identity that should pay off going forward. It's difficult to get psyched about a new shipment of shirtdresses every few months, but Hilfiger and Manivong have found a way to keep us guessing what's next.
