Despite the flashy motivation, there was a lot of functionality on display. High-waist trousers and classic button-front shirts lent a utilitarian air to the designs, while nylon LBDs made the best case for wearing the athletic-inspired, waterproof fabric to the office.
Outerwear ensured the Kenzo woman will transition from Winter to Spring in style. A white, calf-grazing parka was one of the most grounded pieces among the wares, with a red belted coat with contrast black lapels posing as its polar opposite.
Lopez’s photomontages of supermodels will surely be the most snapped pieces among the assemblage—and may have the most retail power if they’re priced reasonably. On oversized t-shirts, colorful high-waist pencil skirts, and drawstring-accented tops, they had the most star power: not just because they were emblazoned with some of the world’s biggest mannequins.
The easy slip and tank dresses uplifted with bold paillettes and sequin embellishment will certainly be red carpet go-tos for the brand’s legion of fans including Zendaya, Chloe Sevigny, and Vashtie.
