Sophie Theallet’s Spring 2016 rooftop presentation was an atmospheric occasion. “I love Africa in my heart,” she said backstage, the show featured the drum beats and traditional singing of a live African band.

The silhouettes included slim-fit pantsuits, trapeze dresses and other feminine looks cinched at the waist — and she used the finest fabrics, from delicate French lace to raffia woven in silk. Abstract prints were used for pantsuits topped with dramatic floating capes, silk raffia and feather tops were paired with lattice-work skirts, and transparent gowns were adorned with exaggerated feathers.
