“This col­lec­tion is about from the board­room to the ball­room,” Den­nis Basso be­gan. “In this col­lec­tion, I used men's wear-in­spired fab­rics in a com­pletely fem­i­nine way. Also, go­ing from In­dian Sum­mer into pre-fall, be­cause pre-fall isn't re­ally win­ter; I took a deep look into it while in­cor­po­rat­ing city to coun­try.”

Basso's ul­tra­fem­i­nine in­ter­pre­ta­tion of men's wear for women's wear meant pin­striped dresses with lace trim, ex­ag­ger­ated hound­stooth shapes came beaded — em­broi­dered on a lime cock­tail dress or graphic ball­gown, as well as in sable on a light­weight or­ganza jacket.

Fur jack­ets were ren­dered for the lighter sea­son in mul­ti­ple bolero styles.

The col­lec­tion leaned far more city than coun­try, in a good way, and aside from men's wear in­spired, there was a stronger as­sort­ment of sim­pler, sportier garb. A color-blocked evening gown, a great pair of black leather trousers, a pink silk jump­suit and trouser with bro­cade top, and a sheared mink and leather moto jacket. A sable and jersey zip-up jacket paired back with a sable miniskirt made for an­other great op­tion for Basso's younger clien­tele.
