For Pre Fall 2016, St. John Senior Vice President of Design Greg Myler drew inspiration from the landscape and culture of North Africa and the chic spirit of France. Graphic arabesques and Berber stripes appear in sumptuous jacquards. Desert neutrals and florals flow into soft bohemian looks while tassels and fringe add movement.

Greg Myler drew from North Africa in his latest collection for St. John, interpreting the region’s cultures and landscapes via color and texture. Geometric and Arabian tile motifs delivered graphic impact on knit jacquard fit-and-flare dresses, some styled with fringe and leather tassel belts. In terms of daywear, Myler’s blazers were playfully sophisticated and tactile. One style featured shredded, red-and-white polka-dot chiffon, while those done in fringed tweed recalled traditional woven rugs and cushions from Marrakech.
