Wow, this was a show, there was so much to see coming at you all at once.
Even though the inspiration of this collection is about dressing the athletic, energetic and modern city dweller there were nods to the past.
Retro pattern lovers would rejoice, there were swing skirts, pointed toe mary janes and boxy cropped jacket circa 1950.
If you didn't get the "vintage" reference, the music on the runway clearly showcased the fusion of that era made current by the mix masters back stage. I can still hear the beat in my head, you can't help but move.
I found this dress interesting there is volume on the sides but the black dress in the middle keeps the silhouette very slimming. I haven't seen this design feature in any other collection as yet. Its like a bubble skirt effect.

I am obsessed with rubberized wool, I want to see it in person so badly. I wonder if it was used for this.
The oversized anorak with the fur lined hoodies just say Brooklyn all over.
I loved this look, I would like to see the true shape of this sweater because I know that the belt is creating that peplum effect.
This suit is fabulous, I love the collar and how it broaden out the shoulder. I need a skirt with a side exposed zipper, he is making me a believer.
I like how the cargo pockets adds a peplum effect to the skirt.
I like the bisecting zippers, I would really like to learn how they apply those.
He transformed his classic black knit dresses into "evening gowns" using a hi low exaggerated peplum. This is the thing, its very eye catching but I couldn't help but think that if someone other than a designer made this, it would come off as "happy hands at home". Going from this evening gown in the spring to what you see below, kinda makes me wonder, what happened here?
I loved the finale look sans the "train". I say skip the extra fabric and throw on a fabulous coat. Mob Wives Style.
And the shoes
