Strongest was the outerwear. In roomy menswear silhouettes, pieces featured the groovy prints you'd most likely find on a trip somewhere far away. A black and green wool jacquard wrap skirt with a diagonal motif had the same found-object quality; it had a simple sexiness that was obscured by the mandala appliqué on the coat worn with it. Tam is at her best when she keeps things simple, and she's still finding her footing when it comes to dependably solid separates. Fall was a step in the right direction.
