Lela Rose: “The artist Jonas Wood served as an early inspiration for the collection, especially with his use of geometrics and botanics. There is an exploration of leaves and the graphic geometry inherent in their patterns. The leaf shapes and patterns can be seen in prints, embroideries, jewelry details, and even shapes.”

JI OH: “The mood is rejuvenation found in going against the grain. One always rises after a fall; instead of falling apart, she strives to elevate and rise above. She navigates a metropolitan landscape with attitude and a luminous energy. In this way, this collection builds upon the marred backdrop of yesterday. A palette of sunshine yellow and pale mint contrast with deep navy and asphalt gray, done beautifully in cocoon shapes, wrapped silhouettes and asymmetrical hemlines. Smooth knits are done in exaggerated proportions; sleeves grow longer and fur pockets stand out from sleek, draped shirting.”

Kimora Lee Simmons: “This season, I explored the concept of women as monuments: stately, sharp, structured and figures of awe and inspiration.”
