narciso rodriguez kept along the same path he was on for spring, developing an architectural collection that was structured and focused. he worked with a palette of black, white, cream, violet, and red, and a center section was all about different tones of grey. many of the looks featured patchworking or colorblocking, like slim black panels along the sides of a shift dress, silk bands on a top, or a navy cropped vest over a suede jacket. even when the silhouette loosened up (as in the latter dresses), there were bands of fabric or sheer panels to still make the piece feel tight. also refreshing: every look was shown with mid-calf flat boots with back lacing and the slightest of wedges. which goes to show you even if your look is sharp, your shoes don’t have to be.
