Jill Stuart has got the environment and endangered species on the brain, offering up a slew of feminine dresses and separates with abstract prints featuring eagles, owls, foxes, birch trees -- a whole national parks homage. The images look painted, and are certainly eye-catching -- the most inventive patterns we've seen at the tents so far. But it does beg the question: How many people will really want to wear pieces with eagles soaring across their chest?
Other dresses (some dropped-waist, giving a vaguely vintage feel, many with scads of narrow pleats) offer surprise panels of suede, leather or other glistening fabric. All in Southwest shades: from hellfire red and burgundy to caramel, salmon, dusky pink and gold.
One of the best: a sleeveless shift dress in butterscotch leather up top, with a dropped waist and pleated red suede on bottom. Throw on one of her comfy camel coats and you're good to go.
