It was one of the show’s several hokey approximations of Monroe’s seaside cuddle session and silly Fifties/Sixties affectations that could be overlooked since the sweaters and amplified outerwear classics were so deftly done. An oversize take on the traditional camel cable knit was pretty perfect. Anyone in the market for a big coat to sink into next season will have great options: a nubby tailored overcoat; a turquoise fur; a pale-pink brushed alpaca. For novelty, there were colorful leopard prints and shiny quilted silk styles with fur linings. Retro lady bombers, sweatshirts and pencil skirts fleshed out the merchandise for those who want something to wear under the coats.
