    Inspiration: An American in Paris by way of Africa. If it sounds a little YSL — aside from the American part — perhaps. There was that heart motif on dresses, purses and rings. But Roy made it her own, and adorable, at that. The same went for the pajamalike silk blazers, easy pants and jumpsuits, all of which worked Roy’s idea of effortless elegance. It’s a concept that’s often easier said than done, but Roy got it right. Even the most complicated looks — a hand-painted tribal print on a poufed, asymmetric dress or embroidered bustier — seemed doable. According to Roy, “It’s just as easy to look great in a silk jersey as it is in a corset.”

    “Fall got very serious,” Lippes said a few days before his spring show. “I want to have fun with clothes.” And what’s more festive than spangles? Lippes opened with a shirtdress covered in punchy black and white paillettes and a kicky ombré skirt. A series of strong black, white and gray looks followed, but color proved to be key. Fluorescents — fuschia, electric blue and yellow — inspired by MoMA’s recent Color Chart exhibition brightened up everything from a silk romper to a knit tank embroidered with multicolored discs meant to imitate Smarties candy. Yes, the collection had a sweet side, but of the delightfully sportif sort, via tennis sweaters and terrific silk running shorts. Overall, the collection was as upbeat and interesting as it was wearable. Well, for the most part. “I don’t know where you’re going in this,” said Lippes of a yellow dress fully embroidered in chunky Lucite baubles. “Probably Miami.”

    According to the show notes, “a play on proportions evokes the fresh sensibility of innate seduction.” Sexiness, certainly, was on Max Azria’s mind. There were plenty of deep armholes, plunging necklines and up-to-there slits. Yet, using his favorite fabrics, such as jersey and silk, the designer once again crafted a lineup of entirely wearable dresses. One couldn’t help but notice, however, the overt nod to Nineties minimalism (Calvin Klein and Helmut Lang come to mind) that rippled through the collection, as with a series of slouchy, color-blocked dresses in teal and mauve and a few very pretty sateen and silk shirtdresses. Azria did venture into hipper territory with billowy jumpsuits — a few just grazing the upper thigh — though it’s hard to imagine the girl who goes to BCBG for cocktail frocks climbing into those anytime soon.

    For their sophomore collection, the ex-Trovata duo tried to give their preppy girl a refined, elegant edge with plenty of cocktailwear — fussy stuff rendered in hammered satin and silk jersey — that felt like an afterthought compared with the casual-cool separates (and great men’s wear) for which they’re known.

    Comey’s real strength is her prints and patterns: Designed in-house, this season’s are both whimsical (like the “waxing-moon” motif) and versatile (the checked jacquard pieces).

    You can count on Julie Haus for pretty dresses, but for spring, her collection had a more relaxed vibe, with separates such as casual shorts and a plaid coat worn over a loose T and skirt that was a perfect blend of slouchy and structured.

    Charlotte Ronson is proving to be a designer who knows her youthful following, this time with a series of sweet, frilly dresses mixed with great sportswear, particularly a light zipped cardigan and mini.

    What girl doesn’t want to look pretty? To that end, Ashleigh Verrier gives her plenty, much of which is beautiful — chiffons embroidered with crystal butterflies and flowers; a terrific vinyl frock raincoat with velvet thorn trim over a lace-detailed chiffon blouse and bloom skirt. Sometimes, however, pretty turned too precious. Otherwise, Verrier offered scant news save for some appealing lean-cut linen dresses.

    It may be a diffusion collection, but Vivienne Westwood Red Label must be a red-hot seller if the gargantuan venue she chose to show her latest collection is anything to go by. The show took place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, the same locale where Giorgio Armani staged his grand-scale “One Night Only” show and party exactly two years ago. On Thursday night, the doyenne of British fashion sent a troop of Bedouin-style babes down a slick black runway against a backdrop of a rising red sun. Westwood incorporated elements of men’s tailoring in light wool fabrics into the collection, alongside fresh shirtdresses in stripped or checked cotton, some with Arabian hoods. Gold lamé was worked into cropped biker jackets and harem pants, while shiny metallic stretch fabric made for slinky fitted dresses. Prints reminiscent of Kilim carpets appeared in knitwear. All in all, the collection was easy and wearable.

    This was Lagerfeld at his savvy best, on one hand lavishing the clothes with ample decoration as if heralding that tough times aside, his ladies have nothing to worry about, while on the other hand celebrating the dressed-up end of his Chanel range, no kooky kid stuff to confuse those ladies should they start to feel skittish. And he still infused the lineup with youthful charm, pinned largely on liberal doses of pink. Suits came in every conceivable variation: with jackets long and lean, full and swingy or cropped into tiny boleros. Dresses ranged from a classic shift to short, saucy knit numbers, and Lagerfeld gave a nod or two to the sportswear set with racy black pants looks. As for the tweeds du jour, they came both traditional and delightfully twisted, the latter in delicate woven tulle ribbon and squiggled with rubber. Evening arrived on a cloud of hazy blue chiffon here, a bower of silvery pink camellias there.

    Add Note Yigal Azrouël likes things just so, but definitely not prim. In fact, he is a perfectionist when it comes to making his clothes “not too perfect.” “I want them to look like they have experience,” he said during a studio visit this week. “Like [they] got kind of damaged. I think it makes [them] look cooler.” To wit, his spring collection was full of the rumpled, nonchalant clothes — leather jackets, silk cocktail dresses and slouchy pants — in a dusty palette and washed fabrics for the worn-in look his clientele craves. Here, batik prints and sarong skirts worked the bohemian side of Azrouël’s downtown ethos. As always, his signature jerseys will have broad appeal, but there were some awkward moments in drab sack dresses and tricky high-waisted pants. While that might tickle the extremely hip, it will likely leave those who don’t get it feeling hopelessly uncool.
