ANNE Klein II signals a return to elegant, refined dressing, recalling an era of timeless classic fashion. The collection is about to-the-point clothes which are not overly composed or studied. A fresh proportion emerges in longer, fluid lines. Skirts reach just below the knee. Silhouettes are loose and soft, whether it is in a pair of easy georgette trousers or an airy floral dress. A mix of personalities creates the light-hearted mood inherent to this season. The collection caters to the changing mood of a woman's wardrobe; the interplay of a perfectly cut jacket paired with a lace camp shirt, tulle T-shirts under silk shirts, an emblem jacket over white leather jeans. These unexpected mixtures function in more than one context and form the essence of true sportswear. Women can choose from classic colours of black, ivory and cool grey. There are soft neutral colours of sandstone, clay and stone, or fresh mixes of navy, white, indigo and denim. Modern basecloths of wool crepe gabardine, rayon crepe, silk faille and Panama rayon form the basis for these investment pieces. The collection features a double-breasted jacket and trousers in black and ivory. There is a newly proportioned slim skirt, silk Harlow shirts and narrow trousers in wool crepe gabardine. A slender front buttoned dress, a long sarong and rayon pinstripe suitings in subtle earth tones create an elegant, feminine look. Denim linen jacketing, cotton and rayon T-shirts, a jumpsuit in rayon crepe, an easy draped skirt, cotton shirts wrapped at the waist, a classic belted balmacaan in wool gabardine, blouses with drape detail and the clean lines of a cardigan jacket beltedat the waist add a touch of glamour. The new necessities include items which diversify and punctuate a wardrobe, just as a great pair of earrings can change the mood of a look. A pair of patterned jeans, a vest in black and ivory floral, a romantic poet blouse in rayon and soft cardigans which do double duty as jackets add to the collection. There is a beautiful range of boat-neck striped T-shirts and stretch check bodysuits. The new cycle jacket in black leather, silk cabled sweaters, a beaded swirl skirt in sand-washed linen and floral give the collection an exquisite touch. Other items include the floral dance shorts, scarf constructed skirts, a slender skirt in black lace and a silk smoking jacket.
