While Bill Gaytten described his message as “soft modernity,” the words “soft and classical” make a more apt handle. A subtle but telling difference, as Gaytten’s lineup linked clearly but not dangerously to the New Look, focusing on a cinched-waist, often belted, full-skirted silhouette. While he made a significant point of surface interest, with big stone embroideries and graphic fabric plays, his boldest stroke was his midcalf skirt length. Fabrics that flowed looked lovely — a gray knit dress was a dream — while stiffer ones veered dowdy. As for tailoring, Gaytten offered simple blazers, knot-front necklines, modified Bars and a beautiful tricolor coat in horizontal blocks of dusty gray, blue and rose. For evening, the prevailing line evolved into gowns with flowing skirts.
