Remember back to grade-school art class, when you used a pencil and ruler to create vanishing points? Jeremy Laing
does, and he used the drawing technique as his jumping-off point for Spring. One print was composed of perpendicular lines that converged prism-style at the model's hips. Laing also draped his chiffon dresses so they were seamless, effectively wrapping around the body into nothing. Though mummylike in appearance, the treatment was actually functional, causing the fabric to move freely with the wearer. Laing favors a more avant-garde silhouette, and in that vein he offered a hybrid short-cum-legging that could be a tough sell, particularly in this economy. But a great taupe perforated-suede cap-sleeve jacket is a fine choice to reel in more conservative customers.
