Urban Layers

Ok, there are a lot of 'urban layers' going on in New York. I'm not even sure what that means. These are clothes after all that can live in most areas, urban or not. However, Jeremy Laing, a young Canadian designer really does encapsulate that phrase. Much of the audience was made up of people trussed up in precisely that - layers of muted colours, varied textures with a protective vibe. Laing served up more of that in elongated shapes with slitted back tunics that were definitely a crowd pleaser.
