Joie's fall 2013 presentation was staged like an opulent dinner party minus the food. Models lounged around a long wooden table under crystal chandeliers, looking wintry and chic in a tightly controlled color palette of black, white, and red. Houndstooth and other prints were allowed, but only in monochrome, and aside from one long black-and-white dress, the shapes were mainly crisp and form-fitting. Standouts included a black leather sheath dress with over-the-knee black boots, as well as a few pairs of slouchy drawstring pants that might be a little easier to wear to an meal.
