The Inspiration: “The collection is about movement, energy and confidence," noted Creative Director Tomas Maier. "We are always thinking about what clothes should do for a woman and her personal experience of them."

The Look: Tailored, but relaxed in silhouette, Tomas Maier’s pieces moved beautifully on the runway. Done in a color palette that mixed pale shades of mist, light gray, sand and beige-pink with deeper shades, including burned red, chartreuse, purple and emerald green, the collection had a strong architectural feel with its pleats, slits and graphic digital prints. Particularly beautiful were the designer’s clean-lined jersey dresses with two-toned tiny pleats — and lucky for fans of the brand because the below-the-knee aforementioned dresses dominated the pant-less collection.

The Accessories: Top-handle patchwork bags, narrow high-heeled suede booties, pumps with flame-like geometric details on their backs along with jewelry in antiqued sterling and pink sterling,

The Beauty: Makeup was kept natural and hair was tightly pulled back.

The Takeaway: Though it would have been nice to see some trousers and a gown or two in the mix, it was an undeniably luxe and sophisticated lineup.
