Marc-meets-Marni is an accurate enough reading of where the light-and-layered, beige-and-linen trend is going this season. And Pecoraro's piecesbrown cotton raised-waist smocks over dresses over leggings, sometimes topped with linen swing dusterscaptured all that. Some of these, finished with hand-tucked bodices and vintage-looking lace, even had a personal feel. Too often, though, the overreferential styling and presentation ended up drowning out any individuality he might have to offer.
