Crisp but never starched: John Patrick brought Organic’s signature toss-on-and-go aesthetic to New York Fashion Week on Wednesday morning with a parade of linen trouser suits, translucent drop-waist shirtdresses, puff-sleeve bonded-cotton sweaters, floral lace shorts, and giant flatform rope sandals in a freshly laundered palette of oyster, navy, and black. Inspired by the idea of the “urban commune,” his Spring/Summer 2013 collection is “not body conscious but conscious of the body,” Patrick says. “They’re like Rice Krispies,” a front-row guest quipped backstage. “Just pour and add milk.” (Full review to follow.)
