Spring started with the idea of power,” says designer Sally LaPointe. “I dove into the world of power suits and the color orange. Orange represents determination, success, freedom.”

The Sally LaPointe Spring 2020 Collection was presented on Tuesday, September 10th at 10am in New York in Gallery I at Spring Studios. The set design was focused solely on creating an abyss of color, achieved using a 21-foot wide mandarin orange carpet that started on a wall behind the models and stretched the length of the runway.

Remaining clean and straightforward, the key words in silhouettes for Spring were “blazer, cape, and drape”. Power dressing gets an update this season through a meeting of bold, structured silhouettes and soft, dramatic layered draping in a strong, bright color palette highlighted by punches of mandarin, orange, green, and cognac. Seen in bonded crepe, printed zebra sequins, and both tie-dye & smooth lightweight leather, this season’s emphasis on head-to-toe tailored suiting showcases new details like cut-outs and exaggerated shoulders made even more impactful in contrast with a nipped in waist. Bold prints and color-blocking both make appearances for the first time in Spring 2020 across the collection. Most notably seen in a half-cognac / half-green suit in the supplest leather and in an ivory & khaki zebra print look topped with an oversized coat that utilizes both faces of a new doubleface jacquard.

Acting as direct extensions of the collection’s monochromatic looks, Spring 2020’s accessories were custom designed for the season. The collection’s block-heeled mule, seen with each look, was crafted in Italy by Daryn Moore and made from supple suedes, nappa calf leather, and soft PVC. And topping off seven looks were custom rabbit hair velour hats by Esenshel, founded by New York-based milliner Rodney Patterson.

Notable guests included Meghan Trainor, Olivia Palermo, Cara Santana, Arielle Kebbel, Cipriana Quann, and Aurora James.
