Plush velvet gave intriguing touch to dresses and separates. Velvet and taffeta gave interesting texture to sumptuous maxi dresses adorned with bows. And as an homage to the European tailoring tradition, classic suiting patterns, including herringbones and checks, add a mannish feel to jumpsuits with applied pockets, suits and frocks, all combining a sartorial attitude with an urban, functional appeal.
