It was probably telling that the white pieces, the most "bridal," were cut from savagely distressed cotton, although the patched holes and trailing threads created a kind of romantic effect that is probably as frilly as Limi will ever let herself get. But it was to basic black that she remained most irrevocably devoted. Hers is a very quiet evolution, and today's show retained the broad strokes of seasons past in its draped asymmetry and full cropped pants. There was also, however, a dramatic volume in an infanta-style dress that could constitute this designer's idea of eveningwear, as well as a kind of classical body-consciousness in dresses that were drawn to the torso with elastication. And let's not forget the slenderizing sheath for a pregnant model, which might have been Limi's way of saying that with or without marriage, there's always life to look forward to.
