Laila Azhar is known for her namesake line and its feminine draped dresses. For Fall 2013, however, the Moroccan-born designer is exploring new territory with the debut of a contemporary range called Astrid . The line will offer, as Azhar put it, “younger and happier” clothes at an “aggressively lower” price point (pieces will range between $185 and $595). A kicky leather skirt shown with a nubby cardigan exemplified the easy approach to separates Azhar took here, as did relaxed silk trousers (in either leopard or a novelty horse print). She didn’t forget about dresses, however. The designer showed a series of knit options, including a bonded lace mini that hugged all the right curves.
