It is always a pleasure and an honor being at Sally Lapointe show.
People are no longer dressing for today, they are dressing for tomorrow. This collection is about looking forward and thinking positive. This collection had cashmere wool coats, fox fur sweaters, and silk turtleneck.
LaPointe comes from an arts background and likes to approach her designs in a similar manner. The show began with a series of white pieces that worked as a blank canvas—white vinyl pants with a sheer top and a double-faced cashmere wrap—before shifting to largely monochrome looks. To contrast with the tonal scheme, LaPointe mixed and layered different textures to create visual variation—a thick butter-soft cashmere turtleneck with a paillette skirt, for instance. The ’60s influence came through in the bell-shaped sleeves and the banding of fabric across the chest to recall the decade’s fascination with capelets. But on the whole, the luxe leisure clothes stuck firmly to the Sally LaPointe school of thought and are sure to please her woman once again.
