The clothes this season are definitely growing up. The designers know that their customers want sophisticated clothes that don’t look like they belong on their daughters or little sisters.
The Bensoni collection was full of prints, light colors, and airy fabrics. I could see this collection on the street or the beach.
As usual, Christian Siriano’s collection featured lots of prints and ruffles. Some people thought it was too much like his other collections, but I think if ain’t broke don’t fix it.
The ladies from Cushnie et Ochs did a great job as usual. They know their customers like sleek with a little something extra. That leather dress was cut perfectly.
Gregory Parkinson’s collection was short but sweet. The patterns and colors reminded me of candy.
I had never heard of Mandy Coon before, but after seeing her jellyfish inspired collection, I would love to know more about her. Structure is something she played with, and that made the mostly black and white collection seem fluid.
