"Broadway Garnier" was the theme for Eric Bergère's collection of tailleurs, flowing skirts with pleats, knit sweaters and ruched shirts. The intent may have been theatrical, but the result was '80s-inspired. There was an assortment of frayed denim pieces, shiny paisley shirts with long scarves, cocktail slips, and fringed bandeau tops. It seems as though Bergère, who is noted for the polish and sophistication of his work, was exploring new directions this season.
