Bars of chocolate, offered on silver trays, greeted attendees at last week’s Opening Ceremony show. It turned out that was only the start of the sugar rush: several looks in, a flow of dark chocolate oozed down a white set. As a candy smell permeated the air, liquid dripped over projected, undulating lines. These were meant to emulate fingerprints, a staple pattern in the collection.

The wavy brown patterns showed up on oversize blouses, swinging skirts, a tunic, and various outerwear. All was mixed and matched in forest greens, cobalt blues, blacks, greys, and rosy pinks. In case the point was missed, an actual hand was raised on a graphic sweater, and palms overlaid geometric shapes on a mini-skirt and capri pants.
