Bird’s Jen Mankins
Blanket stripes: More abstract expressionist than Pendleton, graphic stripes on worsted wool were shown on coats and capes. The slim grey and black belted version from Zero+Maria Cornejo struck a perfect balance between structure and fluidity. I also loved the blanket wool sleeveless styles at Rag&Bone.
Creatures of Comfort’s Jade Lai
LD Tuttle: This season they are influenced by middle eastern rugs, so there are rug prints and this really rich reds in the collection that I am just really attracted to.
