So day dresses draped around the torso, where the interplay of matte and shiny fabrics accentuated natural curves. Both a double-layer tweed and flannel bustier and a tank stitched from black lace and embroidered silk looked slightly askew, and sexier for it. Rodriguez applied that same lesson to narrow, bias-cut silk evening skirts with fluttering trains that gave runway wind machines a good name.
Pants haven't been getting much play this week, and they weren't the main thing on Rodriguez's mind, either, but the trousers he did show had a sporty yet polished ease.
