There was also a round-necked double-breasted coat (you noticed I said coat and NOT jacket…people this is spring!) with cropped sleeves that was beautifully done. There was also a canary-yellow dress that was sexy and alluring, without being over the top. But otherwise this was not a strong collection. Many pieces seemed out of place and the silhouettes unflattering. It seemed like too much thought went into the styling and items as individual pieces.
