According to Jeremy Laing
, it's not too late to get on last Spring's sporty-trend bandwagon. The designer, who decided to forgo a traditional show this season in order to pursue other ventures, presented layered separates—a continuation from his Fall range—with mesh details in shapes that mimicked baseball jackets, basketball shorts, jerseys, and sweatshirts. The color palette was "swamp deco," according to Laing, who recently went on a bayou adventure in New Orleans. A Spanish-moss-colored fabric was pigment-dyed to deliver a milky white and tarnished silver hue. The prints were camolike in a gray scale, and appeared on a double-layered T-shirt with an open flap in the back and slouchy culottes that could easily carry over into evening. Following a few bare, austere seasons, Laing brought back embellishment. There were metallic baguettes on flak vests and bibs that attached to minidresses with matte closures. Leather sequins accented a sexy cutout frock. But the highlight here was an equally sexy look with no sparkle at all—a bustier with an exposed back zipper paired with wide-leg trousers that wrapped to show just a hint of leg.
