(NY Fashion Week) Lepore flies home flag
(02-13 17:42)

Handcrafted in New York was the theme of Nanette Lepore's runway show Wednesday, when she sent out sheer beaded tops, shaggy-collared alpaca coats with girlie geometric prints and dresses and flouncy skirts done in Bordeaux red, violet and a smoky rose.
Lepore, known for her bohemian vibe, used netting to expose some skin in tops and dresses. She used flannel for jackets and pants, along with a belted poncho and skirt. Her looks for fall included unadorned suits with a twist, such as a tier of loose pleating on the back of a jacket.
She paired an alpaca turtleneck with a trouser suit. And she used the same long-haired black shag collar in a look featuring an embroidered strapless dress worn with a knit parka. Known for her youthful, feminine designs, Lepore included a few asymmetrical hems below the knee.
Lepore's pop of color came in a bright violet shearling coat worn with a handloom print dress.
Some of her coats included zip pockets on sleeves. Sleeves were leather on one hooded flannel coat.--AP
