Ohne Titel RTW Fall 2010 / NYCFW Day-04

Last season, Alexa Adams and Flora Gill flaunted serious skills with tricked-out knits and graphic body-con dresses that, though fabulous, veered closer to the editorial side. Now they’re targeting “very wearable” terrain, as Gill says. That means a streamlined sportswear vision — the near Spartan pewter jacket and pants, for instance. A fall palette of dusky khakis, blacks and moss — with a smattering of crystal embellishment — furthered that vibe.

The clothes, confidently constructed and edgy, require an up-close look — more so, given the tone-on-tone patchwork motifs. A jacket features a kicky drape in the back, inspired by bustles, and sleek pants, meanwhile, come spliced and with wandering seams. Rounding out the collection, inspired by 19th-century silhouettes, were terrific knits (with panels of athletic mesh meant to mimic lace), lush fox fur coats and velvet jackets.
