From bows and pleats, to lace and sequins, feminine frills were bountiful at this season’s Jill Stuart show. Lace and sheer panels have, in fact, popped up at a number of shows and they proved to be Stuart's most successful pieces (particularly blouses and daytime dresses). Also stellar were the designer's tightly cinched fitted trenches. The less successful high-shine pieces appeared a tad too slinky and lingerie-like.
Overall, while there may not have been anything earth shatteringly innovative in the season's lineup, there will be plenty of feminine closet staples for Stuart fans to pick up come spring – along with a few more envelope pushing pieces like bra tops, another burgeoning trend.
