I guess even having his studio broken into just days before the show didn't deter him from turning out a great collection. Somehow his being inspired by Crocodile Dundee and Carrie netted the perfect combination of ugly pretty or as the French call it ..... jolie laide. Oddly Beautiful.
A really modern and clean collection with a really unique pastel color palette with black accents. Like many others, he focuses on the waist even through to the belts in his evening wear but the mixing and layering of fabrics and textures is the really impressive part.
Suits and twin sets mix with leather jackets and Batman inspired details to create a perfect balance edgy and sweet. I love her brand of floral prints which include partially dyed hems and contrasting sequins. Can not even decide on which pieces are my favorites, I think all of them.
As always they turned out the loveliest prints and mixed them with one another perfectly. Rather than than fall in line with any body hugging trends, they sent some really easy fitting and much more wearable shorts and jackets pairing them with their quirky spat socks (spocks?).
