>> One of the first Spring/Summer collections to come our way from Europe, Tim van Steenbergen's show Moules de Belgique, set the ball rolling in a good direction. Elegance and class emanated from the metallics, the knits, the puffy-sleeved cropped jackets and the full skirts. Even a hoodie was thrown in here and there. It was all very streamlined, simple, and yet striking -- very wearable, but far from everyday. The beiges and creams that we saw in New York were very prominent, as well as a pair of the jodhpurs that seem to have popped up in many of the shows thus far.
