Sexy and sweet. Sophie Theallet knows how to work both sides of a woman’s character, and her collection this season delivered both. She spent considerable time developing a fully-fashioned silk knit — an open weave that resembled mesh — for racy body-con dresses and cardigans, later followed by dresses with either lace overlays or insets.

While transparency in its varied forms was prominent, equally important was the sweet. Theallet played with a graphic floral print — technically a weed, she said — placing it on cotton day dresses and one of the few pairs of pants in the lineup.
