Holy loose knits Batman! Mona Kowalska’s Fall 2015 might have been spun on “heavyheadedness/wrongfootedness,” but the clothing simply looked warm and cozy. A settled feeling pulsed through the harmoniously matched cable knit cardigans and pant counterparts. The simple, loose separates and dresses uncovered touches of simplicity and steadfastness. The explosive Mount Vesuvis print went surprisingly well with the calm silhouettes, but the bright pop of green in the midst of a “calm before the storm” atmosphere felt jarring.
Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern of Co found inspiration in Deborah Turbeville’s fashion photographs for this season’s collection. Smart silhouettes hung loosely in a palette of gray, black, cream and deep navy. While an architecturally interesting skirt with 3D folds served up a dose of fun, the most successful pieces were streamlined and languid. A particularly successful combo came in the form of a short sleeved gray sweater over loose gray bottoms.
