Rue du Mail

What that entailed was parkas over slipdresses, an accumulation of waistless and weightless shifts, and a closing series of high-shine graphic-print dresses that looked like ponchos with their sides spliced and their seams resewn at sharp angles. Sitbon has always had an eye for color, and the hues came on strong today: orchid, turquoise, orange, chartreuse, peach. And she hasn't abandoned her former inclinations altogether. Some of her dresses were embellished with swirling insets of micropleats at the bodice; others were decorated with matte white sequins around the neckline. But this did feel like a departure from her Fall debut, which leaned more artsy. It will be interesting to see which approach sticks.
