A staircase led guests of today’s show to the underground venue: coolly lit & concrete walled, establishing the aura of this collection right off the bat. LaPointe nailed every look with mature craftsmanship, distinguishing these edgy pieces from the unpolished cliches this attitude often calls to mind. A master of uncomplicated, cool-girl silhouettes, Sally accomplished so much with so little, delivering sweater after sweater after coat after dress that brought about chills with their too-good restraint & their slouchy-in-all-the-right-places sex appeal.
Texture played a huge role in elevating such simple cuts to the next level. Cashmere on fox on lambskin; mohair on goat hair on wool shantung, etc. The coveted, effortless, I-woke-up-like-this spirit is all too attainable with this collection we’re sure we’ll be seeing lots of circa six months from now.
