“I started with the idea of being both an introvert and an extrovert,” Sally LaPointe told The Daily backstage. “I feel that as humans, you’re not black or white, so I became obsessed with this gray area.” As a result, contrasts of mixed materials like transparent vinyl juxtaposed to a neutral color palette with unexpected pops of red made for some mega eye-candy on the runway. Par exemple, the final look: a silver sequined dress topped off with a red trench coat with beaded sleeves. Also new in the collection? Denim. “It’s like a waxed-coated woven fabric that’s supposed to look like denim,” said LaPointe. “I did this in structured jackets and shirts to keep it unexpected instead of creating just a pair of jeans. I did denim my way.” And Sally’s way is more than okay for us.
