THE GOOD: Alexandre Herchcovitch offers this interesting take on the tweed coat. The shape and detail are fresh and flattering.

It's apparent from Saturday's collections that this is not going to be the year for the female figure. Most everything coming down the runway is oversized proportions — billowy A-line top over billowy A-line bottom — or shapeless and boxy. Either way, curves are out and androgynous is back in.

THE AMUSING: Bubble skirt and pleather. With white tights. Wow, Abaete, just wow.
