IT’S not often, actually, that fashion gives rise to new items. We’ve seen it, done it, got the T-shirt all before and we’re more concerned with rifling through the drawers of the past than we are setting a new agenda when it comes to the technicalities. Narciso Rodriguez has other ideas and this evening introduced us to the “half skirt”, a skirt and shorts hybrid that is just as suggestive as the mini but has a little more practicality about it. Nice. Elsewhere among the collection and the designer mostly stuck to square cuts, bandeau necklines and flat-looking shapes. From afar it looked masculine, androgynous but close-up there were slithers of shine and layers of pretty lace to imbue a sense of femininity.
