New York designer Anthony Castro's new collection, V, didn't break new ground, but it was immensely wearable, with sexy wool and jersey separates with lots of motocross style.

A chocolate tweed cycle jacket and matching skinny tweed pants with zippers at the ankles, worn over a charmeuse peach floral halter top, spoke to the biker chick aesthetic.

There were zippers at the pockets of black wool stretch pants and up the sides of a black and charcoal striped skirt, too. But the details were subtle enough to keep the clothes from looking costume-y.

Castro said he came to L.A., where he does a third of his business, to rev up excitement for the new collection. But he plans to show in New York next season.
