has been preoccupied with modern landscapes after watching an independent documentary called Women in the Dirt
, which spotlights eight female architects who have designed groundbreaking outdoor spaces that blur the line between nature and the man-made. With this in mind, Roy balanced linear silhouettes with an organic palette of granite, eucalyptus, sapphire,
"foliage" orange, and garnet. Borrowing from the elements, there was a washed silk color-blocked blouse that gave the impression of sunlight reflected on water and a graphic rose-print shirtdress with a tuxedolike tail. The biggest crowd-pleaser (which happened to be Roy's favorite as well) was clearly the striking fuchsia set with slim trousers and a high-neck, open-back top that looked like a vest worn in reverse. Aside from that standout, the collection was perhaps too down-to-earth and lacked the
creative layering and pizazz we've come to expect from Roy in recent seasons.
