There was a touch of the naughty school girl (but oh, so chic) at Shaun Kearney’s early morning show for Cynthia Steffe, with models strutting in sexy ribbed thigh highs in short, fitted jumpers, shrunken suits in textured tweed and leather, tiny skirts and cozy oversized fringed cardigans.

Predominantly a neutral palette of nude, stone, chocolate and white -- the collection still managed a wow factor with standouts that included pleated skirts with chiffon insets, a photographic floral print, sharp military-inspired jackets and a terrific moleskin parka.

Naughty was extremely nice.
