The embroidered tulle worked nicely, particularly in dresses with an Art Deco echo. And Sitbon underscored the idea of an appropriately weighted airiness in coats and dresses with some of the most wearable feathers we've ever seen. They were dappled in tonal shades both light and dark, and clipped short. But a girl cannot live by net, puff, and plume alone. That seemed to be the thinking in the dark and sexy interlude (consisting of a lace-up tailored skirt and matching halter, and attendant dress) and a ribbon-woven, body-con moment that recalled Hervé Léger. A better option were the tuxedo jackets and coat-dresses with a spray of pleated tulle peeking out from under the collar. Is there a more appropriate companion than a tux to dresses that are meant to be as light and cosmopolitan as a Champagne bubble?
