One of the things you have to love about Nanette Lepore is that she listens to her customers. Reportedly, we wanted pretty shiny beading to come back to her collections and she delivered like Domino’s, kicking off the collection with a reflective curlicue pattern on eye-popping chartreuse that faded into a rich red wine hue. It was game on from there, with all manner of gorgeous dresses, jackets and pants appearing in that color family with that gorgeous motif flying down the runway.
The thing you have to love about Lepore is that she knows the women who wear her clothes so well. She delivered a fitted knit dress with a cutout skirt.
She gave us a smart cropped double-breasted jacket and mini pairing in a herringbone pattern soaked in that same color pattern with a deep cabernet-hued blouse underneath.
She gave us an electric blue dress under a rich black coat for desk-to-dinner impact.
She gave us Marcia Brady funky printed dresses matched with rich pumpkin-hued coats for fun times.
She ended with metallics for nights we need to simply shine. In short, Lepore gave us a whole wardrobe of clothes that will be there for us anytime we need them for fall. They’re clothes we’ll love and they’ll love us right back. A great collection. Well done.
