Looks came long, lean, and seventies-inflected, as in a banded satin column dress that united navy, auburn, mustard, and pink in its broad stripes. Prints are one of Turk's fortes, and other patterns and colors—particularly the geometric Embarcadero print jersey dress and the collaged tweed print—delivered a desert-y, southwestern feel. There were touches of the truly rich, in the form of off-black dyed furs (a curly lamb coat with rabbit sleeves in plum and navy, and a pine green lamb gilet) and an alpaca and melton wool coat. Sweaters with zigzag and chevron intarsias also looked sharp. It was a well-layered collection that might mystify some Turk devotees with its relative dearth of dresses—but surprises can be a good thing.
