The American designer, renowned for his understated elegance, had us zoom in on his fabrics for his Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, particularly a handful of leather looks that were in fact made with a black sateen. Rodriguez’ dresses were a highlight—particularly that capacious white shirt dress. The beautiful palette was largely monochrome while the deep burgundies, mustard yellows, forest greens, and aubergine colors came across as somewhat warm for spring.
