Graphics

Words were all over the runways. Lela Rose had them in the form of a “Love Is Love” cape, Oscar de la Renta made its mark with “Just Married” and “I Do” adorning jackets, earrings, and necklaces, and Reem Acra was all about the love, on neckerchiefs, headwraps, and gloves. Elie Saab said “Oui” to a diamond and pearl headband.
